Daughters of Utah Pioneers- Washington Co UT
Southern Utah is rich in culture and history, especially in Washington Co, UT. The Daughters of Utah Pioneers is a company dedicated to preserving this history and informing the community. Founded by lineal and legally adopted descendants of Pioneers who came to Utah in May of 1869, this organization has been in place since the 1920’s. May 10, 1869 is marked as a very special day in which two railroads connected. Directions East and West joined together in Utah and hence paved the way for the future.
The Daughters of Utah Pioneers consists of three companies, who together run a Pioneer Museum. At the museum, they preserve and maintain artifacts, clothing, landmarks, research, as well as publishing histories and hosting local events open to the public. The idea is to keep the history live and informative for the community to come and learn more about the establishment of Utah. In addition to the published materials and manuscripts, they also collect and even reprint photos, along with maps and charters.
The museum is open to the public weekly, as stated before, and hosts several outlets for community involvement. Coming up is a unique presentation of what women in Southern Utah dressed like in the 1880’s. Come out and learn more about this decade, see the fashions of the time, and visit the museum.
