Visit Frontier Homestead and experience living in a pioneer cabin, printing on a 19th-century press, and rug weaving on a 100-year-old loom. Step back in time and experience the outdoor collection of horse-drawn farm equipment and wagons. Binders, mowers, reapers, scrapers, plows, and manure spreaders are all on display, as well as early hay balers, a well drill, and a rare snow “tank.” Anchoring the museum’s backyard is a series of historic structures including the historic Hunter House – Cedar City’s oldest remaining home, and the George Wood cabin – the fifth oldest structure still standing in Utah. For the more adventurous, travel 20 miles west of Cedar City and enjoy the authentic ruins of a 19th-century iron foundry and newly created nature trail, but be sure to call or stop by our front desk for directions.
