  • Interesting history of pioneers to the area. There are displays of machinery and a covered wagon along with a visitors center with a video. The Heritage center is free and has bathrooms available.  more »
  • We spent about 45 minutes here reviewing the details of the story. The video was interesting. It did prompt us make the drive to the Hole in the Rock.  more »
  • Really interesting information. A nice place to read history of the area. I recommend visitors stop here.
  • Nice place to learn some history. Hole in the rock was one slippery slide for wagons and people! The Escalante Grand Staircase is on the way to it. Enjoy both of them!
