Gable project for Oneida Stake Academy delayed

Scheduling problems with another high profile project has prompted officials of KEPCO to move the day to install the new gable on the Oneida Stake Academy to March 28 at 10 a.m. Nathan Hale, of the Oneida Stake Academy FoundatIon, says KEPCO has been working on the City Creek Project in the center of Salt Lake City. That project will be dedicated next week and the schedule change will allow KEPCO’s crew to be at City Creek for the event. Hale says the Oneida Stake Academy was built by Mormon pioneers between 1890 and 1894 in order to inspire their children with a first class education. It is the only academy left in Idaho. Hale says the beautiful new gable constructed by KEPCO and State Stone will be trucked to Preston, Idaho the day before it is installed. It is expected to take about four hours to lift the 16-ton, rock-filled, galvanized steel frame into place. Crews have been preparing the 122-year old Oneida Stake Academy to receive the new gable. The building is being restored as a community cultural center and museum of local history.
