Title A Tractor and a Smile
Description park was then enclosed with an attractive slatted link fence With the cooperation of Senior Citizens, the square board, and Ephraim City, the parking lot was surfaced. The Sparks family sold the Hans Hansen home to the City at a greatly reduced price and it became an integral complementary addition to the park. The house was painted, the grounds landscaped and further improvements are now being made. It is home to available DUP and donated antiques and relics. More are needed. The pioneer cabins were roofed, the floors repaired, and secure windows and doors installed. For extra protection, a metal fence with locked gates was built around them. Finally, on May 29, 1993, the project was dedicated. It seemed that phase 1 and phase II of the Ephraim Square had been completed. What will phases III or IV be? Among those present at the dedication was a represenative from ZCMI. He was very complimentary of the authenticity and beauty of the project and stated it was the best in the State of Utah of a Cooperative Mercantile Institution. He presented a plaque to be on display in the building. The Mayor accepted it for the City and also stated that because of the creative financing, the borrowed money from the CIB would be paid back by interest earned on grant and donated money. The project will not be a cost to the taxpayers. Bob felt that work had only begun to make Ephraim a true example of its Scandinavian heritage. As an example of what can be done to attain this goal is the Crouch's (Fat Jack's Pizza) beautiful restoration of the Social Hall (Dreamland). As the city has obtained the entire adjoining Garth Thompson property7, it could become an interesting addition to the Ephraim Square. The wooden granary might become a wonderful place to display Pioneer crafts and works. Other property on Main Street adjacent to the Pioneer Park would enlarge the Park and make the entrance more spacious. A project like this one is never finished. Everyone interested has visions of things to be done. May they be accomplished. 121
