The Reddick Hotel/Ophir LDS Meetinghouse, built in 1903-1904, is locally significant under Criterion A for its association with the development of Ophir, Utah in the first half of the twentieth century. Under Criterion A in the areas of Commerce, Religion, and Entertainment/Recreation, the building served the community in two capacities: as a hotel/boarding house until 1924, and as a Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints' (LDS Church) meetinghouse and social center between 1924 and 1959. The period of historic significance is 1903 to 1959, beginning with the construction of the building and ending when the Ophir Branch of the LDS Church was dissolved in 1959. The property meets Criteria Consideration A as a religious-use building formerly owned by the LDS Church, but which derives its significance primarily from its original use as a hotel and its importance use as a meeting hall for the town's residents during the boom town's decline.
