Manti is a pioneer community of great historic significance with the beautiful LDS temple built in 1888 and over 100 century-old homes still standing. Manti's first city hall, built in 1875, has just been lovingly restored after six years and over 5,000 volunteer hours of work. Generous funding for the restoration to this point has been provided by the George S.and Dolores Eccles Foundation, $28,000; Manti City, $10,000; Certified Local Government (CLG), $12,780; Manti's Destiny Committee, $5,600; National Trust, $4,200; Exxon, $2,500; Manti Ladies Literary Club, $2,000; as well as many private donors. For the elevator addition funding: Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), $110,000; Department of Agriculture- Rural Development, $38,200; and Manti City, $11,250.
With the interior restoration completed, the Historic City Hall now houses a tourist information center and a local museum as well as a social hall on the second floor which is used for small wedding receptions, luncheons and other civic meetings. The building is also the home of the Sanpete County Office of Economic Development and Tourism. The long stairway prohibited full use of the second floor by people with special needs, however with the elevator it now meets those needs.
You will enjoy seeing the great work that our fabulous volunteers have done. It's amazing what a few hands and hearts can do working together to accomplish a common goal.
