History & History Related Items

Panguitch history:

Panguitch was named for a big fish! Actually, it is a Native American word that means big fish.

The area was first settled in March of 1864. The settlers had a very difficult time as the winter was exceptionally cold. Their crops failed and they ran low on food. Some men volunteered to go to Parowan, about 40 miles away, to try to get some flour and food. They began with a wagon and oxen but the snow became so deep they had to leave them and continue on foot. It is said the drifts were so bad that the men put down a quilt and walked on it to the end of the quilt, then put another down and continued on with that one while moving the previous quilt to the front and walking on it. This is now known as the Panquitch Quilt Walk and has evolved into a local festival celebrating the event that saved the people that hard winter.

Panguitch was evacuated during the Black Hawk War but was re-populated in 1871. A new brick factory was built that helped the local residents with jobs and related businesses. Since times were still hard, the workers were paid in bricks rather than money. The result was many fine brick homes and buildings in Panquitch. The entire city of Panguitch was designated a historic district in the National REgister of Historic Places in 2006.
