Title A Bridge to the Future
Description This letter brought a flurry of letters to the editor, supporting the restoration of the buildings. One said: "Without history we have no identity in time or place . . . The irreplaceable quality of a historic building is that we can actually go back and touch the years that are gone. Destroy history and we destroy ourselves." Nibleys were encouraged in their effort to preserve the buildings by state architects who recognized the were built by the Utah Pioneers, and the only one still standing. It was their dream to have the building restored and made useful, as it now stands, the one outstanding building on Ephraim's Main Street. Early in July 1969, Richard Nibley was invited to meet with the Clean-up, Fix-up Committee, and encouraged newspaper so that interested citizens might know what he believed the future was for this building. By 23 September 1969, there were 44 stockholders in the Sanpete Development Corporation, mostly from Ephraim, Manti and Mount Pleasant, but also from North Carolina, Oregon, California, and Provo, Ogden, Orem, American Fork, Kaysville, Fielding, Clearfield, and Salt Lake City, Utah. In a paper prepared for the stockholders, the following information was included: The Utah State Legislature says: Recognizing that the historial heritage of Lee Knell, chief architect of the Utah Heritage Foundation says: Every architect in the State of Utah should see the handsome heavy trusses of the Ephraim Co-op which beautifully express the function of a truss. The physical fact of restoration would be easy to do. 107
