Title Courthouses of Sanpete County
Description sufficient equipment and space for 75 years" in the fireproof vaults in the Recorder's, Treasurer's, and County Clerk's offices. Although it seemed adequate at the time, all three vaults and an additional basement vault were filled from ceiling to floor with books and records at the time the additions were made now fifty years later. As we visit the courthouse today we see more working space, larger vaults, two court rooms, a modernized room for law enforcement officers, convenient rooms for the Extension Service and many other features that add to the beauty and feasibility of the building. The jail is provided with a day room for special activities and an outdoor area that makes a place for exercise and fresh air for the prisoners. A quarter of a block gives the needed parking room for the constant flow of traffic to the courthouse„ A history of the courthouse would not be complete without a reminder of those who have opened the doors, recorded the deeds, issued the tax notices, assessed the property, written the marriage licenses, sat on the judge's bench, governed the affairs of the county and provided innumerable services throughout the years, The names of those who served in county government in the courthouse through the years are too numerous to mention, but they will long be remembered. They have been part of the growth process, the progressive spirit that has made the changes, that has supplied the impetus for the advancement from the one-room adobe buiIding to the magnificent structure that is our Sanpete County Courthouse today. 1.
