Title The Old Cuncil House
Description under perpetual care in 1965 with new roadways, lawn and sprinkling system, but it will never be forgotten as a very favorite spot in Mt. Pleasant cemetery by those who enjoyed it for so many years. This beautiful old fountain is soon to find a new home, close to the spot where it was created at 32 South State. It will be placed on the lawn of the Pioneer Historical building where it will again refresh the passerby, the friends and relatives from far and near who visit this historic place. It will stand as a symbol of craftsmanship as well as of courage, faith, love, and civic pride of the Merz brothers, Adolph and Hyrum from Switzerland. References: Information for this essay was told to the author in detail by Hyrum C. Merz of Mt. Pleasant who fondly remem-bered each detail as his daughter Florence Peacock verified. Brother Merz will be 95 years old on July 29, 1973. He still lives alone, attends church, the Temple, and drives his own car. THE OLD COUNCIL HOUSE Norma S. Wanlass Manti, Utah Honorable Mention Anecdote "Satan triumphs again." Declared the pessimist when lightning struck the Council House. "Nay," thundered President Young. "Tis the Lord's way of telling you to move the settlement of Manti from the stone quarry to the Tabneracle Block." So in the fall of 1854 the Council House was rebuilt on the Northeast corner of Tabernacle Block. Each family was asked to donate so many days of labor. 50
