The Iron Mission museum tells the story of development
in Iron County when, in the 1850s, Brigham Young sent
Mormon missionaries there to mine iron. Museum displays
include horse-drawn vehicles used from 1850 to 1920 and
a collection of Indian and pioneer artifacts.
The museum is in Cedar City. A picnic area is available,
but there is no camping.
