The Heritage Day Celebration includes a tour of many of the town’s charming pioneer-era homes and buildings, built along Main Street and throughout the town (10-4). Tickets for the home tour cost $10 for adults and $5 for children, and are sold at the Old Spring City School and the Old Firehouse, and funds benefit preservation and restoration efforts in Spring City (9-2).
This year has seen great strides toward finishing the historic Spring City School. The Friends of Historic Spring have worked with the Spring City Corporation to obtain a CIB grant/loan, the loan portion of which the Friends will repay. The grant/low interest loan funds total about $650,000, which will complete the exterior and first floor of the school. These substantial funds will make the restoration of the old school a realistic goal, and finishes are now being selected, bids for general contractors considered, etc.
An art and antique sale is also held at the Old Spring City School on Heritage Day (9-4). A silent auction, called “Art Squared,” is held at the school, where patrons bid on one-foot square paintings done by well known Spring City artists including Osral Allred, Lee Bennion, Susan Gallacher, M’Lisa Paulsen, Doug Fryer, Kathleen Peterson, Cassandria Parsons, Lynn Farrar and many other Utah artists (9-2 sharp).
Additional artwork by well-known artists as well as antiques will be available for sale in the Old School and in local galleries. Breakfast (8-10) and lunch (12-1:30) is served at the Spring City bowery and is sponsored by the local LDS ward.
Sneak Peek, Old School, Friday 5-8! New this year for the first time, an early preview of the Art and Antiques is available. Be first in line to buy art and antiques and catch a sneak peek of the Art Squared items on silent auction Saturday May 25th. The cost for this event will be $5 per person. Tickets available at the door. We hope you'll join us for this new event.
Spring City is just off Highway 89, between Mt. Pleasant and Ephraim. It may be sunny in Spring City while rainy on the Wasatch Front, and the homes and art are lovely, whatever the weather.
