Lehi Primary; Lehi Tabernacle, Lehi, Utah Territory

A home-like structure surrounded by picket fence and large trees

First Ward Meetinghouse, built 1855. This would have served as the Tabernacle for this stake, as no other buildings existed in the area at this point in time. (Courtesy Church History Library, Jay Burrup Postcard Collection, circa 1898–2000.)

President E. R Snow Proceeded to instruct the children by asking [p. 138] them questions, such as Who was the Doctor of the laterday [Latter-day] Saints? The name of the first Prophet of this dispensation? The names of those who presided in this place, and the names of their Presidents? Also my <many> questions of Bible and church history, all of which were promptly answered by the children.1 Sister Snow also related many little Stories, and concluded by showing the children the gold watch that once belonged to the Prophet Joseph Smith.
