Located adjacent to the Mormon Pioneer Cemetery dating from 1846 to 1848.

  • This is the place where the great "Mormon Migration" to Salt lake began. Visitor’s Center and Museum has free admission and is open daily, 9 to 9. It depicts the 1846-1860 migration of 90,000 pioneers to the Rocky Mountains. My family loved this place, nicely decorated.
