Built in 1908 from nearby sandstone and mostly by volunteer labor, the Heber Amusement Hall (also known as the Heber Social Hall) has served for generations as a community and civic center in the heart of Wasatch County, Utah. The amusement hall was fashioned after the Apollo Hall in American Fork, Utah and at the time was one of only a few dance floors that were spring-mounted. A kitchen was added in 1917. The amusement hall, along with the Wasatch Stake Tabernacle, was listed on the National Register of Historic Places on December 2, 1970. The hall, like the adjacent tabernacle, is owned by Heber City and currently serves as a senior citizen center.[3]
