Rockport School House

The Rockport School House is located in Pioneer Village.  It was constructed in 1870 out of "squared-off" pine logs cut in the mountains surrounding the pioneer settlement of Rockport, Utah. It's a fine example from the middle and late 1800's of schools located in the outlying communities. In the winter, the school children they would have to huddle around the pot-bellied stoves to keep warm since it was impossible to adequately heat the entire cabin. The building also served as an LDS chapel until a few years later when the LDS settlers could afford to construct a church. The toen of Rockport was flooded by the Wanship Dam in 1957.
