Needs of the Lehi Historical Archives
Possibilities for Eagle Project to meet these needs
The Lehi Historical Archives have just been established. The base document of the Archives was the collection of historical photographs and documents gathered by the late Scouter and Historian Richard Van Wagoner. He was a deaf scout, but didn’t let that stand in his way. As a scout he received every merit badge available at the time. He documented and wrote about Lehi History. He wrote the current history of Lehi City. His work needs to be carried on by the Scouts of Lehi.
Contact Person Is Mr. John Haws
Project Idea #1 Lehi Telephone Number
Need: We have need of historical documentation of phone number and addresses of people lived in Lehi, Cedar Fort and Fairfield.
Ideas of what needs to be done. Brigham Young University Library and University of Library has historical Utah Phonebooks in their book files. There may even be such numbers on the internet, but I don’t know where it would be.
We would like these pages copied from as many years as possible. It would be better if the copies were enlarged so people can read them easily and put them in plastic protective holders and put them in binders.
Project Idea #2 Education Multi-Media Presentations
Need: We need video presentations to educate students and the people of Lehi the history of different subjects of Lehi History. This will be done by photographs, narration, interviews and music to bring the subject to fruition.
Ideas of what needs to be done. Make a video on a certain subject of Lehi History and bring a well researched film full of photographic imagery and musical background.
Subjects are endless:
- The coming of the Sugar Plant to Lehi
- The History of the Roller Mills.
- History of Broadbents Store
- History of the Early School and the Lehi School District.
- History of Lehi Main Street
- Co-operative Movement in Lehi (Lehi Union Exchange, People Co-operative Uptown and Downtown, ZCMI, Church)
- Old Folks parties and first ones starting in Lehi.
- History of Irrigation in Lehi
- The History of the two Prohibitions in Lehi
- The Story of the first settlement in Sulphur Springs
- History of the Tabernacle
- The History of the Library
- Any other subject or history that you would like to tell.
Project Idea #4 Wood Display Tributes to Lehi History
Need: The Lehi Archives are asked to help provide displays on the history of Lehi for events and other activities of Lehi City. We have a need to expand our displays and portable display cases of Lehi History. Recently an Eagle Scout built and assembled display unit dedicated to Hester Rippy and her starting the Lehi Rippy Literacy Center. Another Scout followed that up with a display case of memorabilia of the 100 years of Scouting in the LDS Church and in Lehi. These are portable cases that can be moved different places to commemorate the history of Lehi. We are so pleased with the efforts of these fine young men and their leadership projects.
Ideas: The subjects the boy would like to build display case and fill it with photographs, historical narration and artifacts to pay tribute to such entity.
Subjects are endless:
2005 Salt Lake Winter Olympics
Tribute to the building and Dedication of the Mt. Timpanogos Temple
Tribute to the Old Lehi High School (Jr, High) built on Center Street in Lehi
Tribute to the Memorial Building (not the Museum but the Building)
Tribute to Porter Rockwell
Tribute to the Lehi Hotel and Sara Smith Schoolhouse
Tribute to the Ross Schoolhouse (still in existence)
Tribute to Founder David Evans
Tribute to great women of Lehi
Tribute to the Royal Theatre
Tribute to John Devey and his first motorized car in Utah

The list is endless.
