On July 14, 1897, the Deseret Evening News carried a “Historical Society Call” addressed to the people of Utah and inviting all interested persons to an organizational meeting at the Templeton Hotel on July 22 to form a Utah State Historical Society. As a result, Governor Heber M. Wells brought twenty-seven persons together. The Utah State Historical Society was on its way exactly fifty years after the vanguard of pioneer wagons entered the Salt Lake Valley.
