When I visited the Morgan County Courthouse on the morning of July 23, 2008, it marked the completion of my "collectin" all 29 counties in Utah. I had first visited the state at the age of 19, about 44 years earlier.
The lady I met in Morgan, whose great grandfather had helped establish the town, told me that the original courthouse was a much more stately building. However, she said, it had been constructed of adobe clay bricks and had to be torn down because the bricks were deteriorating. It's a shame they couldn't have saved it.
While I was taking a photo of this Mormon Church (Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints) an 84-year-old lady who was riding her bicycle down the street in front of the church stopped to chat. She said that she had lived in Morgan all her life and was the fourth generation of her family to live there. Her great grandfather had been sent to the area by Brigham Young to help establish the town in the mid 1800's.
