Title Memories, Mayfield, Sanpete County, Uath
Description An old hack driven by one of the townspeople would stop at the depot each day when the train arrived and pick up the mail and any passengers who wanted transportation to town. When I was a boy, the hack was drawn by a team of horses. Later this was replaced by a motor vehicle. When World War I started, a number of our young men were called into the armed forces. Most of the townspeople went down to the depot to see them off. It was a cold, stormy night and a tearful occas ion as our young men left for the war which was supposed to "make the world safe for democracy." Another occasion for visiting the depot was to take our wool down to be shipped on the railroad. There were corrals next to the depot where animals were held before shipping and many residents took lambs and other livestock there to be transported by rail. Finally, when we took a trip to Salt Lake City or Provo, we would go to the depot to buy our tickets and wait for the train, A train ride, when I was a boy, was never boring, but truly a much-anticipated and exciting experience, Time has brought changes to Ephraim. Many of the old landmarks are gone. But they remain ever vivid in my memories. Source: Personal recollection.
