The Native Heritage Exhibit, a new area of Frontier Homestead State Park & Museum, will allow visitors the chance to experience how Native peoples lived in Iron County prior to Euroamerican settlement. Additionally, students will be able to become archaeologists for the day, learning techniques and methods of the archaeological process. Explore the Fremont pit house and the Paiute wikiups, see a traditional shade shelter and Native garden, all set among native vegetation and replica prehistoric village mounds.
This project is a joint effort of the Frontier Homestead Museum Foundation, The Archaeological Conservancy, Southern Utah University, Project Archaeology, and Cedar City RAP Tax. Watch this page for progress pictures and more information!
