Findlay 255 East 100 South Ephraim, Utah 84627 Many are familiar with existing stories of Ephraim's pioneer heritage, and part of that heritage is retold frequently as the role of the Co-operative Mercantile Association is recounted. However, some may not remember the storm of controversy that swirled about this stately structure in the late 1960s, when the wooden center part of Hermansen's Flour Mill was removed and it was thought by some that the entire corner would be cleared, and a modern service station could be built there to attract passing motorists to spend a little tline and a few dollars to help build the economy in Ephraim. Citizens of Ephraim were in the middle of a clean up campaign, and many old barns and tumbling out-buildings the most beautiful interior decorations inside a newly built home could be fashioned from "barnwood," and there may have been sale for the boards that had not entirely disintegrated. Along with teetering barns and trees that clogged the canals carrying water to Ephraim, some thought the Co-op and Granary on what is now called "Ephraim Square," should also be razed. The buildings were referred to as an "eyesore," and one newspaper account states that with the removal of the flour mill, work had also begun to tear down the granary. 105
