Description: TORREY LOG SCHOOL AND CHURCH On September 18 , 1898 , construction began on the Torrey log church , later used also as a school . Local settlers furnished labor , cash , and materials for this unique log structure with its steep hip roof , flared eaves , square bell tower on the entry side , and a pink sandstone foundation . On December 19 , 1898 , school opened in this 21 x 37 foot one room building for students of Torrey and the surrounding ranches . This multi purpose building was used for dances and other activities , including civic , social and religious meetings until two , red sandstone buildings were constructed , one for a school and one for a church . However , use of this original log building continued both by the LDS Church and the community until the 1970s . In the fall of 1990 , the Church deeded the old , log building to the local Daughters of Utah Pioneers , Camp Radiare , with the provision that it was to be moved from Church property . Since that date , the building has received major restoration and renovation . This one of a kind structure will continue to be used for religious , civic , and educational functions .
