Springville Pioneer Museum to celebrate Art City Days
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.
