“Brigham Young Academy Square ~ This block is named Brigham Young Academy Square in recognition of its vital history. In 1875, Brigham Young, then President of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, founded Brigham Young Academy in Provo, Utah. He appointed a board of seven trustees, with Abraham O. Smoot as president. Under Karl G. Maeser, principal, the Academy held classes in the Lewis Building from 1876 to 1884, when the building was destroyed by fire. Thereafter, the school occupied temporary quarters for eight years. The historic Academy Building designed by Joseph Don Carlos Young, was dedicated on January 4, 1892. In later years, three additional buildings were erected on this square: College Hall (1898), the Training School Building (1902), and the Missionary-Preparatory Building (1904). These three buildings were demolished in 1997. After the Academy became Brigham Young University in 1903, the University continued to occupy the buildings on this square. They became known as ‘lower campus’ after the Maeser Building (1911) was erected on Temple Hill (‘upper campus’). Brigham Young University then used both campuses until 1968. The University’s Brigham Young High School also used this site from its beginning to closure in 1968. The lower campus was sold in 1975. The four buildings stood vacant over the next two decades. Provo City purchased the square in 1994 and in 1995 the Brigham Young Academy Foundation, the Utah Heritage Foundation, and Provo City launched a six-year effort to renovate the Academy Buildings as the Provo City Library at Academy Square. This facility was occupied by the library in the summer of 2001.”

“Massasoit (Born 1580) ‘Protector and Preserver of the Pilgrims’ ~ Massasoit or ‘Yellow Feather’ was a chief of the Wampanoag Tribe of Massachusetts. Known for befriending the Pilgrims who landed in Massachusetts in 1620, his people protected the English settlers from other hostile tribes and saved many from starvation by teaching them to plant corn and other crops. Massasoit remained an ally of the Pilgrims until his death in 1661. Cyrus E. Dallin (sculptor) Born and raised in Springville, Utah, Cyrus E. Dallin is recognized internationally for his realistic portrayals of the American Indian. He created the original ‘Massasoit’ in 1921 which is currently located in Plymouth, Massachusetts. He is also recognized for creating the Angel Moroni statue for the Salt Lake City Temple. – The Tribe of Many Feathers – The Intercollegiate Knights”
