Original Spring Lake LDS Church--Photo of the Day

The Spring Lake Ward was organized as a branch in 1877.  It was originally a branch of the Santaquin Ward and a year later it became a branch of the Payson Second Ward.  In 1898 this building was constructed.  It was completed in 1899.  Originally it was a one room church.  The room served as a chapel, dining hall for dinners and banquets as well as a dance floor and an auditorium for programs.  There was an elevated stage in the east end of the building.  Whenever there was a death in the branch, the stage was decorated in a filmy material that made a backdrop for the services.  The branch was changed to a ward in 1901.
