AAA Editor Notes
Frontier Homestead State Park Museum is n.w. of Coal Creek Bridge on SR 91 at 635 N. Main St. The first iron foundry west of the Mississippi River was begun here in 1851 by a group of Mormons who answered Brigham Young's call to settle the area and process its extensive iron deposits. A diorama based on descriptions of the foundry; a collection of horse-drawn vehicles such as stagecoaches, surreys and sleighs; and a display of farm machinery can be seen.
The horse-drawn vehicle collection also includes a Stanhope Phaeton and a Studebaker White Top Wagon. One of the stagecoaches, from Utah's Four Corners region, dates from the Butch Cassidy era and is scarred by bullets.
Picnicking is permitted.
