“The story of Frontier Pioneers”
Lack of iron was a major concern to pioneers who began settling Utah in 1847. When iron ore was discovered in southern Utah, Mormon leader Brigham Young called for volunteers to colonize the Cedar City area in November of 1851. Ten months later, the colony completed a blast furnace and began to operate an iron foundry. A desire to preserve and interpret the history of this endeavor eventually led to the establishment of the Iron Mission State Park in 1973. (Now Frontier Homestead) The Iron Mission Foundation was organized in 1989 to act in an advisory capacity and provide financial support for museum operations at Frontier Homestead State Park. The Foundation provides guidance and assistance to the officers and staff of Frontier Homestead in their efforts to effectively collect, preserve, interpret and present historical materials to the Museum's visitors and constituents.
