Willard’s House


Winter Quarters
Willard Richard’s home in Winter Quarters doubled as a Post Office and also where marriages were performed. It was unique for two reasons, the first being that it was octagon in shape. The 2nd reason was what people dubbed the home. What was the house nick-named?
a.                  The Endowment House
b.                  Uncle Sam’s Letter Depot
c.                   The Potato Heap
d.                  The Happily Ever After Home
Yesterday’s answer:
a.                  1922 in Salt Lake City
The first Primary Children’s Hospital was a 35-bed facility built across from Temple Square in 1922.
