b.                  The 1st handcart company entered the Salt Lake Valley
c.                   The 1st plural marriage in Utah

Yesterday’s answer:
c.   It doubled as a court room
The Panguitch tithing lot:   On the northwest corner of the lot, the Tithing Office was built of hewn logs covered with shiplap painted gray. The building served as a school classroom and priesthood meeting room. It also served as the first courthouse, for which the county paid $10.00 per month rent to the Church. It is now part of a private home.
