The large amusement hall in the basement was used for school and dances. A stage was erected in the south end where pioneer dramatic association presented plays. In 1918 church activities ceased. By 1926 it had deteriorated. The Daughters of the Utah Pioneers asked permission to recondition the building for a memorial hall which was granted.
