Wednesday saw work continuing on the spires from last week, presumably in readiness for the statue of the angel Moroni to be installed. Remember that the statue is scheduled to be placed atop the east spire on Tuesday, July 12, 2011, at noon. I am still deciding if I will go to view it. I would like to take photographs of this historic occasion.
Brigham City History
Population Changes (continued)
Brigham City’s population of 6,790 in 1950 increased to 11,720 in 1960, to 14,000 in 1970 and to 15,596 in 1980 as Thiokol’s sold-fuel motor production and number of employees expanded. By 1984, Thiokol’s Wasatch Division was the largest private employer in Utah with 5,750 employees. In 1990 the population of Brigham City was 16,000.
Bushnell, Intermountain and Thiokol all brought new residents with a diversity of religious preferences so that 14 denominations now have worship services in Brigham City. The business community and public services continue to grow to meet the demands of the larger population. (From: Brighamcity.utah.gov)
