The Mormon Pioneer National Heritage Area (MPNHA) recognizes and commemorates the efforts of Mormon pioneers who made the trek westward, settling Utah and the American West. Spanning a 400-mile area along U.S. Highway 89, Utah State Route 24 and Utah State Route 12 – an All American Road – the MPNHA encompasses five unique districts, each with its own distinct history and landmarks. According to its mission statement, the MPNHA “preserves, interprets, promotes, and enhances Utah’s pioneer heritage…working to increase tourism, encourage economic development, revitalize communities, provide heritage educational opportunities, and improve the quality of life” within its districts. Furthermore, the area was formulated around three central themes: the interaction of people with the landscape, the interaction of people with each other and the interaction of people with the institutions they created. It is the only National Heritage Area designated and named for a specific people – the Mormon Pioneers – offering one of the best perspectives of the Mormon colonization experience in the United States. It has been identified by Congress as a factor in the expansion of the United States as well as becoming a major world power.
