The settling of Spring City



Spring City, Utah is a small community, but it boasts an amazing number of artists and writers in this national historical site. Many of the buildings were constructed in the 1850's and some have been restored with the help of local residents skilled in architecture and historical renovation. The town layout follows in the tradition of Mormon street plans, eschewing names in favor of a numbering system (100 North, 200 South, etc.). Almost every home has enough room for livestock, which consists primarily of horses, sheep and poultry (they have a wonderful recipe for turkey that tastes like teriyaki steak). Just a few miles south of Mt. Pleasant, the geographic center of Utah, Spring City looks out at the majestic Horseshoe Mountain and many other surrounding peaks. Make a point to visit some of the nearby parks, many of them national monuments, such as Bryce Canyon, Arches, Dinosaur Monument and Zion National Park. It will enrich your life.

The event is held rain or shine. Tickets run about $ 10 for adults and $ 5 for kids under 12. Toddlers are free if held; $ 5 if they toddle around themselves.
The entire community is involved and throughout the day there are bake sales, lunch items, and craft items for sale. There is an evening dinner in the park, with entertainment, is also available for an extra charge.
Local artisans give presentations on their particular craft, such as hand-thrown pottery, hand built pioneer wood furniture, rug weaving, etc. Proceeds from ticket sales go to Friends of Spring City, who use the money to help owners of historic homes with repairs or improvements. The entire city is on the National Historic Register as one of the finest examples of early pioneer community planning and home construction in the nation.
