Oct 03, 2019 07:25PM

The Pioneer Museum, sponsored by the Springville-Mapleton Daughters of the Utah Pioneers Company, is located at 175 South, Main Street in the old Carnegie Library Building.

It is open March through November on Wednesday, Friday and Saturday from 1 to 5 p.m. Admission is free. You can call 801-491-2076 for private appointments during off hours.

If you are interested in learning about the heritage of the area or in doing personal Springville family research – this is the place.

There are artifacts, histories, photographs and documents of the area. All ages will enjoy the hands-on activities and games. Cub scouts, children’s groups and families are always welcome to visit the museum and glimpse the past.

On Sept. 26, the Springville Sage Creek Elementary 4th grade classes visited the museum in connection with their study of Utah History. The children played pioneer bingo, made a whirligig toy and learned about many artifacts from the pioneer early Utah era.
