Houses and other Buildings

"They had brought from Fountain Green a building which had been used as a furniture store, and they converted it inot a school as well as a place to meet for church services. The building had been donated to Cedar Cliffs by William and Lillian Livingston. The building was later returned to Fountain Green, placed just west of the bank building, and became a pool hall. It was later destroyed by fire."



"Last Friday Birch Creek, a suburb, celebrated May-day in the mountains. Some large swings were erected and a good time is reported."[7]

"A grand time will be had here on Friday, 14th. A jubilee of the schools of Wales, Cedar Cliff and this place will be held here. Moroni was invited to join but declined the honor, no doubt thinking themselves too high in the scale of society to visit us. A large, handsome and convenient bowery is being built and everything possible will be done to accommodate our visitors that their visit might remain a bright picture in their album of memory."[8]
