The pioneer church is the oldest remaining community building in Emery County.  It is significant due to wood frame construction, sheathed in clapboard, and lined with adobe bricks.  In 1980, it was placed on the National Register of Historic Places.

When properly restored, the building will once again be used for a Visitor Center, Community Center: dances, movies, plays, lectures, concerts, weddings, receptions, local art and other community activities.
