A Presbyterian Minister Won the Hearts of Panguitch Residents THE Y~~m“ TOWN OF CORINNE, UTAH, WAS ONLY THREE MONTHS OLD in June 1869 when the Reverend Melanchton Hughes stepped off the Union Pacific train to begin his ministry there. The following Sunday, June 13, Hughes conducted the first Presbyterian service in Utah at the Corinne City Hall, and by November of the following year the Presbyterians had dedicated their own chapel in that town. From that small beginning the Presbyterian ministry spread to other locations throughout Utah, usually focusing its efforts on boom mining towns where non-Mormons tended to congregate. By 1900 the Beehive State had 23 Presbyterian churches within its borders and a membership of over 1,300. Seven years later another church was added to this list when the Reverend T. M. Keusseff dedicated a chap1 in the rural, mostly Mormon village of Panguitch in remote Garfield County. His ministry was the first and only non-Mormon mission to Panguitch and proved rewarding to both Keusseff and the tiny town
