Frontier Homestead State Park Museum

Lack of iron was a major concern to pioneers who began settling Utah in 1847. When iron ore was discovered in southern Utah, Mormon leader Brigham Young called for volunteers to colonize the Cedar City area in November of 1851. Ten months later, the colony completed a blast furnace and began to operate an iron foundry. A desire to preserve and interpret the history of this endeavor eventually led to the establishment of the Iron Mission State Park in 1973. The Iron Mission State Park was later renamed as the Frontier Homestead State Park Museum in 2009.
