The Frontier Homestead State Park is getting a major enhancement. They were selected to receive $12,200 in funding from Cedar City/Brian Head Tourism Bureau to enhance the parks education programs. The funds are coming from the Transient Room Tax collected by the county. The funds collected are distributed to help market the Iron County area as a tourist destination. And, some of the funds will be used to offer discounts to the public to area attractions.
The Frontier Homestead State Park is trying to be a community, so these funds will help them achieve their goals. The funds will be distributed in February and the park is expected to use the funds throughout the year on social media, advertising and more. They are also working on an audio tour that you can get on your cell phone.
The audio tour will include segments of the parks special features and attractions like Hunter House. You will be able to call a phone number and receive about the attractions you are interested in. There will be signs posted throughout the park that will include a specific phone number for the areas you want to learn more about.
Frontier Homestead’s State Park is one of many great winter attractions in Southern Utah. The history of the area is really enhanced by the park. For more information about the park visit www.frontierhomestead.org.
