This building was constructed by the LDS Church to house the Big Horn Academy, or "BHA" as it was known in its day. The LDS Church ran the school until the public school system succeeded the church-run school. My mother and her siblings went to school here. They left the farm in Penrose and traveled by horse and buggy to their lodgings in Cowley, returning home each weekend. I don't know the exact distance--maybe 10-15 miles? I remember my mother telling about pranksters who somehow got a cow up on the roof. Who knows?
