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 turn-of-the-20th-century hideout for outlaws, Browns Park was also the site of a successful ranching operation started by Scottish immigrant John Jarvie in the 1880s. On the grounds is a replica of a general store built in 1881, a blacksmith shop, a corral and the two-room dugout where Jarvie lived. A 15-minute orientation video is shown in the on-site museum. Guided tours are available. Picnicking is permitted.
Hours: Daily 10-4:30, Memorial Day-Labor Day; Tues.-Sat. 10-4:30, rest of year (dependent on staff availability). Phone ahead to confirm schedule. Allow 1 hour minimum.
