"Vintage signs along the back roads and byways of Utah should be preserved because they add fun, beauty, and character to our lives," says Lisa Michele Church, a local historian. "Signs from the early 1900s reflect the creativity and vitality of long-time family businesses and the personality of our community. They are one-of-a-kind, evocative of a certain time and place."
