Serve Daily - - EMPOWERING LIBERTY - By Judy El­sner

To cel­e­brate “Good As Gold” - the 50th Art City Days cel­e­bra­tion - in Springville, the Daugh­ters of the Utah Pi­o­neers will be hav­ing ac­tiv­i­ties at the Pi­o­neer Mu­seum on Satur­day, June 13. The mu­seum is lo­cated in the old Carnegie Li­brary at 175 S. Main Street in Springville.

The gift shop will be out­side in front of the mu­seum in the morn­ing hours be­fore the pa­rade, which starts at 10 a.m. It will also be open later in the day from 1 to 4 p.m.

There are so many won­der­ful ar­ti­facts in the col­lec­tions, all of which have been gra­ciously do­nated by fam­i­lies of the pi­o­neers that set­tled Utah and es­pe­cially Springville and Maple­ton. There will be ac­tiv­i­ties down­stairs for the youth such as crafts and games. Vis­i­tors can see weav­ing looms which are still be­ing used to­day.

Per­sonal pi­o­neer her­itage re­search can be done from the files, pho­to­graphs and ar­ti­facts of Utah pi­o­neers. Many vis­i­tors are de­lighted to see what is on dis­play from their fam­ily. Young peo­ple can see col­lec­tions from the “Olden Golden Days.”

The usual hours of the Pi­o­neer Mu­seum are Wed­nes­days, Fri­days and Satur­days from 1 to 4 p.m. It is open by ap­point­ment dur­ing off hours by call­ing the mu­seum at 801-491-2076 or direc­tor Su­san Bartholomew at 801-489-7811. There is no charge for ad­mis­sion.
