The recent death of Ezra Taft Benson, beloved prophet of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, will leave a void in many civic, as well as church, affairs.
The Benson Grist Mill (Volunteer) Restoration Committee will miss his occasional visits and active support of the historical restoration project and ongoing tourism program in Tooele County.President Benson was justly proud of his great-great-grandfather Ezra Taft Benson's early supervision of the mill project.
The mill site is open to all visitors. We extend a special welcome to President Benson's family to continue to visit this increasingly popular historic site.
Jack Smith, chairman
BGM Restoration Committee
