Fighting Fulmers: Display

Boxing Gloves, Fulmers, South Jordan, Utah, West Jordan, Utah Salt Lake City Exhibit, DisplayThe eleven acres of Fullmer property lay astraddle the common boundary of West Jordan and South Jordan. The children went to school in West Jordan and to church in South Jordan never making much of a distinction in their minds between the two. They lived in a tiny one bedroom home with no indoor plumbing or electricity but it didn’t matter. What mattered was boxing.

This family’s famous and  journey began when the Fullmer boys noticed an outdoor boxing ring at Marv Jensen’s house on the way home from school. Gene began training at six and all of the boys trained daily. This display demonstrates the work ethic, close family ties, training and positive philosophy of a great family.

Old Time Post Office, Store, Home & School Exhibit

Gale Center of History & Culture Museum in South Jordan, Utah

School
The school is built to look as if we are ready for a day of learning at the turn of the twentieth century, about 1900. It resembles the one built at approximately 104th S. and 1300 West.

Home
This house is built to look like the home of Byrum Henry Beckstead, one of the first settlers in South Jordan and was built especially for children. In it they (you) have the opportunity to feel what it would have been like to live back in the early days of South Jordan.

Store
There were several stores in early South Jordan. The first large store was the Jordan Mercantile run by Joseph Holt. It was located at 10346 South 1300 West and was built about 1895. It carried a full line of household and farm items. It also housed an office, dance hall and stage. The wonderful building here in the History Center is a combination of two later stores that were important places in the lives of the early settlers starting around 1930.

Post Office
In early days mail delivery was very different from today. Mail to this area of the Salt Lake Valley was delivered once a week to the city of Sandy. One postman, or mail carrier, then delivered mail to the South Jordan, Bennion, West Jordan, Riverton, Draper, Midvale and Crescent cities. Then back to Sandy he went! He carried it all on his back in 2 bags.

*Is it open mike or open mic? I’ve seen it spelled both ways. So I checked my dictionary, which lists mike as the preferred spelling, and mic as a variant. Other dictionaries I consulted didn’t include mic at all. Still unsatisfied, I checked Bryan A. Garner’s Dictionary of Modern American Usage (1998 edition). Garner argues, “Whereas mike more immediately suggests the pronunciation, mic more immediately suggests the longer form. All in all, mic might be considered preferable.”
