Capitol Reef National Park, Utah, USA: Built in 1896, the Fruita one-room schoolhouse served as Mormon church & community center and schooled students until 1941. Established in 1880, the Mormon town of Junction became known as Fruita by 1904, also called "The Eden of Wayne County" for its large orchards. Fruita was abandoned in 1955 when the National Park Service purchased the town to be included in Capitol Reef National Park, later restoring the schoolhouse, Gifford house and barn.Add to Cart Add to Lightbox Download
