AAA Editor Notes

John Jarvie Historic Ranch is about 8 mi. n.w. of Dutch John, Utah, on US 191, then 22 mi. e. on a gravel road, following signs to Browns Park. A haven for outlaws around the turn of the 20th century, Browns Park formerly was the site of a successful ranching operation started by Scottish immigrant John Jarvie in the 1880s. The ranch today includes a replica of the general store originally built in 1881, a blacksmith shop, a corral and a two-room dugout that was once Jarvie's residence. A 15-minute orientation video is shown in a historical stone house that now serves as a museum. Guided tours are available. Picnicking is permitted. Time: Allow 1 hour minimum.
Hours: Daily 10-4:30, Memorial Day-Labor Day; Tues.-Sat. 10-4:30, rest of year when staff is available. Phone ahead to confirm schedule.
