This is the Place Heritage Park
More than 50 buildings have been relocated or reconstructed to form a mid-1800s Mormon village but, depending on the day of week and time of year, some of the buildings may not be open to tour. Interpreters in period dress demonstrate various crafts such as blacksmithing and wool spinning. There isn’t a museum or visitor center. Most of the buildings have signs explaining their history and significance but some general history would be helpful for people who aren’t familiar with the Mormon’s story.
The website states “The Park is fully wheelchair accessible, though the terrain is difficult in certain areas.” This is not true. Half of the streets are not paved but are surfaced with large, loose gravel. The ones that are paved are steep. Very few of the buildings have ramps. New sidewalks have been constructed in some places but they often end to become uneven stone or gravel paths. I don’t recommend visiting if you use a wheelchair.
The parking lot is large enough for any RV.
