After giving some history and conjecture on the use of the Spring City 'Endowment House', Roberts states '...the 'Endowment House' of Spring City remains shrouded in mystery.' The building is an excellent example of pioneer craftsmanship, design, and symbolic artwork. 'It documents the multi-use nature of early Mormon public structures. It stands as a tribute to the heroic labors of the Spring City Relief Society.' [The Relief Society was responsible for the building's construction.] The connection of the building with Orson Hyde may tell us something of his activities and the workings of the Church in the 1870s.
