Parowan is a city in and the county seat of Iron County, Utah, United States. The population was 2,790 at the 2010 census.Parowan became the first incorporated city in Iron County in 1851. A fort that had been constructed on the east side of Center Creek the previous year was an initial hub in the development of ironworks in the region. Parowan served as the agricultural support base for the local iron industry, whose blast furnace was located in nearby Cedar City. Eventually, the ironworks were decommissioned.Despite occasional successes, the mission failed to produce a consistent and sustained supply of pig iron. By 1858, most of the area's mining operations had ceased due to disappointing yields. Today, the area's chief industries are recreation and tourism.GeographyParowan sits on the eastern edge of Parowan Valley, and at the mouth of Parowan Canyon.According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 5.8 square miles (15.1 km²), all of it land.ClimateThe climate in this area has mild differences between highs and lows, and there is adequate rainfall year round. According to the Köppen Climate Classification system, Parowan has a marine west coast climate, abbreviated "Cfb" on climate maps.HistorySouthern Utah's first settlement and county seat of Iron County, Parowan City blends a rich historical past with present-day, small-town hospitality.
