Planning a Family Adventure?
Come to the Wasatch County Daughters of Pioneers Museum located at 188 So Main Street in Heber City. Admission is Free. We are a non-profit organization with the mission to honor the achievements of all pioneers who came to the Utah Territory. Artifacts, photographs and histories have been and are being collected and preserved for the public to see. The Museum provides our visitors the opportunity to learn about the early history of Wasatch County. Highlighted are early settlers, the communities and artifacts of the pioneer era between 1830 and 1900.
What is "New'' at the Museum?
Recently the Fortie family donated a tool chest and tools that belonged to the architect and a builder of the Wasatch Stake Tabernacle, Alexander Fortie. A display of Native American artifacts has been assembled that includes facsimiles and original items from the culture of our first inhabitants. Items that tell a story about pioneer life, work and play are displayed. Additional "Seek and Find" activity sheets for children have been developed. Several of our display cases have been relocated to accommodate our growth, the photographs have been cleaned and new ones hung as part of Weston Epperson's Eagle project. We appreciate his excellent work and also those who assisted him in the project.
