Sons of Utah Pioneers
I co-founded an authentic Pioneer Village to preserve the memory and heritage of the early pioneers of the Utah Territory and the western U.S.
The Pioneer Village contains the original structures built by Utah pioneers, including the Turner Cabin, the Haws Cabin, the Loveless Home, a granary, a school, a woodshop, corn crib, outhouse, and more. It also features various pioneer wagons, a working blacksmith shop, authentic mercantile general store, and a wide variety of historical artifacts and tools.
Pioneer Village represents early Provo, a frontier community existing in large part in isolation. The pioneers’ very survival depended on their own skills and the support of their neighbors and friends.
