Hands-on for all

Ready for a checkers match?

Spring has arrived at Frontier Homestead and with the warmer temperatures comes the annual opening of our self-directed activity stations. These very popular hands-on, interactive activities allow visitors of all ages to personally connect with the past like never before. Currently we have twelve stations including:

    • Playing dominos
    • Washing clothes – Frontier Homestead style
    • Building a miniature log cabin

Build your cabin or your castle.

  • Writing your name in the Deseret Alphabet
  • Challenging your friends and family to a game of checkers
  • Taking home your own handwritten postcard
  • Designing your own sheep brand
  • Learning to tie a variety of knots
  • Loading our full-size covered wagon
  • Panning for gold
  • Grinding sand in our Arrastra
  • Roping our Homestead cattle

Our self-directed activities allow you to spend as much time as you want at Frontier Homestead, engage with the past in an entertaining way, and above all, choose your own adventure.  Stop by and see if you have what it takes to be a Homesteader.
