Title I Remember When
Description lawns or sprinklers, only grass and irrigation ditches. It was during this season that I was attacked by the ram. Sanpete County Records show that this property was granted to the citizens of Manti in the year 1872. U. S. Grant was President of the United States at the time. The grant was made by him to Mayor Luther T. Tuttle, for a sum of $I3.00 although the full amount may not have been shown on the deed. About that same time Luther T. Tuttle deeded the property to Sanpete County. Sanpete County retained the title for the next fifty-three years. On November 3, 1925 the County Commissioners offered the block for sale. The property was sold at public auction at the front door of the County Court House at 10:00 o'clock a.m. Lawrence Lowry, then Mayor of Manti City, made the highest bid. The price was $1500.00 Since that time Block 73 Plat "A" has belonged to Manti City. The seasons have come and gone. Many changes have taken place in Block 73. But hardly a child grows up in Manti who does not have pleasant memories of the one-time County Block.
