Frontier Homestead State Park

Description
In the 1850s, Brigham Young sent a group of pioneers to settle the area that is now Cedar City. One key purpose was to develop iron mines and a foundry.

Relics from those pioneer days are on display at the state park museum. Exhibits include historic cabins, horse-drawn vehicles used from 1850 to 1920, a replicated pioneer household, a collection of pioneer artifacts, and mining equipment. An iron industry exhibit features the only known remaining artifact from the original foundry - the town bell.

In addition to the permanent collections, rotating exhibits highlight artists from the local region, as well as rarely seen artifacts from the museum's collections.
