No name Thursday feature! Ummm... in the words of Liz Lemon: I want to go to there. 😮 🥃 Posted @withrepost • @whiskeylore If you're going to head to a whisky bar, why not one that looks like a whisky jug. Can't wait to get back to my favorite whisky bar @themashtun1896 in October! #Aberlour , here I come! 🥃 Sláinte!
Can you tell I’ve been feeling wildly nostalgic about Vermont lately? I’m already looking forward to having our yearly summer trip there be this babe’s first road trip. 🌱🦔🌈🚙This stone cold beauty was designed/built by the founder of @yestermorrow, John Connell.

Look to this day!
For it is life, the very life of life.
In its brief course lie all the varieties and realities of your existence:
The bliss of growth;
The glory of action;
The splendor of beauty;
For yesterday is already a dream, and tomorrow is only a vision;
But today, well lived, makes every yesterday
A dream of happiness, and every tomorrow a vision of hope,
Look well, therefore, to this day!
Such is the salutation of the dawn!
Congratulations to Utah’s latest National Register of Historic Places listing - the Ephraim Relief Society Granary! Io LandArch and @evalogue.life researched the history of and wrote the National Register Nomination for the Ephraim Relief Society Granary, constructed c.1872-1875. This vernacular classical-style stone granary building is located along Main Street in the rural town of Ephraim, Sanpete County, Utah. The building was used to store grain and other resources for the Relief Society, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and the Ephraim Co-op. Although Relief Society granaries once existed in nearly every Utah town, today onlyenine remain. At the time of its operation, the granary served as one of the few social and economic spaces for local women during Utah's early settlement years.
Today the structure is one of the largest and most substantial Relief Society granary still existing, and features simple yet elegant Greek-Revival style massing and proportions. In the 1980s the building, along with the neighboring Ephraim Co-Op building were saved by a small group of local preservation advocates. It was eventually converted into use as an arts space and gallery, which was founded by and today is run by women. .
We would like to thank Rhonda Lauritzen with Evalogue.Life for going above and beyond the scope of a typical NRHP nomination on this project! Rhonda’s extensive research, which included obtaining oral histories, extensive primary research, and community outreach, is bringing to light the often silent voices of women in early Utah and pioneer history. We love the fact that this beautiful and rich history is being celebrated, re-told, and continues to be woven today through the activities and programming of Granary Arts!
