Visit This Charming Little Fort In Utah And Step Back In Time

Can you imagine what it was like for Utah’s pioneers to survive here during those first tenuous years? With the hot, dry heat, the occasional Indian attack, illness, floods, deaths from childbirth…it’s amazing that the pioneers were able to stay and create the towns and cities that make up Utah today. But not all times were bad. This little fort was built in anticipation of an attack from Indians or the U.S. Government but was never used for defense. It’s a fascinating little piece of Utah history. Take a look!
