Morgan Commercial and Normal College Marker

Salt Lake City. Text from the plaque: Organised January 1868. On this site, John Morgan, noted Civil War veteran, LDS missionary and Church leader, established the first successful educational institution in the territory of Utah. Here was established in the Morgan College in 1870, Utah's first free public library and reading room, and here many of the future pioneer merchants, bankers, educators, and Church leaders received their educational training.
