Pioneer Memorial Theatre
Salt Lake City, Utah

The Pioneer Memorial Theatre was built as “the modern counterpart of the old Salt Lake Theater,” a tribute to “the thousands who sat enthralled within its walls” and to the “traditions of our Pioneer theatrical heritage.”  Although only parts of the exterior bear any resemblance, Pioneer Memorial was to be “pleasantly reminiscent of the Salt Lake Theater in architectural design.”   Construction on both building began on the 1st of July, the original in 1861 and the latter in 1960.

The Panguitch Social Hall, originally called Mascot Hall, was built between 1890 and 1900. It was used for dances, parties, school assemblies, plays, chautauquas, wedding receptions, county fairs, etc.

The Social Hall has a curved roof and walls that were three bricks thick. The building was originally heated by two pot-bellied wood-burning stoves. During the summer, wide double-doors on either side of the hall were left open for ventilation.

In 1920, the Social Hall was damaged by fire and rebuilt.
