This little stone building yields plenty of history and as long as it stands, it helps preserve memories of Chino Valley’s humble beginnings in the early 20th century. The antique building, which is now out of commission, was Chino Valley’s first Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints chapel that was brought to life by the first Mormon settlers in the area. It was dedicated in June, 1924. (Amy Sanders/Courtesy)
