WASHINGTON COUNTY HISTORICAL SOCIETY (Washington County, Utah)
St. George, Utah
LOCATIONOn Ancestor Square in St. George
Northwest corner of St. George Blvd. and Main Street
HISTORYThis building was built with some of the leftover rock from construction of the Tabernacle. It is believed that George Brooks built this building, as he did his own house up on Main Street.
It is assumed that Sheriff A. P. Hardy used this building as his office and that it was built for that purpose since the old jailhouse was later constructed next to it.
The building was scheduled for demolition during the construction of Ancestor Square. But it was determined that the structure was historic and worth preserving, so Ancestor Square was designed to include this building.
