The Old Rock Car Wash ™ is the first and only car wash patterned after an 1800's schoolhouse in the United States!
Why a schoolhouse design? On this exact location in the 1860s, a schoolhouse/community building was built by the early settlers of the Coalville community and was constructed of light-colored sandstone rock from a quarry nearby. This building was later dedicated by frontier pioneer Brigham Young, who was the governor of the territory and president of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and named it the Old Rock Schoolhouse.
Atop of the structure hung an iron bell. The bell was rung to signal the start of school and on special holidays, but also to alert the community of trouble. The last time the bell was rung was the Armistice Day of World War I. While the structure of the school is now in the historic section of the amusement park Lagoon, the original bell stands tall on a monument located on the Old Rock lot as historical marker #13 dedicated by the Daughters of Utah Pioneers connecting what once was to the present time.
