Every year Lehi Heritage Day honors those making history today as well as an important aspect of Lehi’s history. This year’s Labor Day event will be no different with its 2022 theme of, “100 years of Beautiful Lehi Homes”.

“We plan to fill the North Gym of the Legacy Center with displays on some of the oldest and most beautiful homes in Lehi,” said Lara Bangerter, director of the Lehi Historical Society and Archives. “Most displays will be done by someone who once lived in the home. We hope to share photographs and stories of the homes and the people who lived in them. After Heritage Day, you should be able to drive around town and know a little bit about each of the homes we highlight.”

If you have a home you would like to display at Lehi Heritage Day on Sept. 5, from 4-6 p.m., please contact the Lehi Historical Society and Archives at 801-768-1570 by July 22. If anyone has pictures of the Lehi Canning Factory/Lehi Cereal Mill that was at 300 North and 500 West, those photos would also be much appreciated. Please call or email to lehihistory@gmail.com.

In its nineth year, Lehi Heritage Day has presented Lehi’s history from the aspect of each of the first five wards of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints which settled the area, through the eyes of Lehi’s earliest industries, with the stories of those who lived within the Lehi City Fort from 1850-1860 and most recently, what it was like to live in Lehi during the 1960s.

“We are super excited about this year’s theme,” said Bangerter. “Whether you grew up in Lehi or not, it will be fun to learn the history behind many of our beautiful old homes.”

Bangerter said just the other day, while helping a customer, she learned something interesting about a home near her home. George H. Wing purchased the home around the turn of the century and was the fire chief and police marshal of Lehi from 1912-1913. But Wing quit being the fire chief, because when the people of Lehi would gather to help get everything out of a burning house, some were looting at the same time. Wing said he couldn’t do both jobs effectively. Therefore, he quit the fire department so he could focus on his police work.

“So, so interesting,” said Bangerter, “and this is one of the homes we will be featuring! I can’t wait to see the pictures and stories the family chooses to share.”
