Town #42: TEASDALE est. 1870

Teasdale lies just west of Grover. It is just one more small farm community. Teasdale was named after George Teasdale, a Mormon apostle.

This is a fun building that is in Teasdale. It is the Teasdale Cultural Hall built in 1917 out of local red rock. The roof is shaped after the tabernacle in Salt Lake City.

Town #41: GROVER est. 1880

Grover is another little town west of Capitol Reef National Park. It was settled in 1880 and was named for President Grover Cleveland not for the furry blue monster. It's original name was Carcass Creek. I can see why they decided to change the name. John is holding his hand because the sign post was loose and he got a sliver in his hand when he touched it.
