Topic:  Past, Present and Future of the Relief Society House

The Relief Society House is one of the older buildings in town and served as the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Saints Women’s Auxiliary (Relief Society) meeting house. The purpose of the building was to provide a meeting place for the local women where they could provide service to the community, grow personally and support and strengthen their families. The building was later sold and eventually became the home of Wes and Verde Hughes and their twelve children. Come and learn what makes this building unique to Mesquite and what the future holds for it.
