Parowan Heritage Park


Parowan Heritage Park is located on the original site of where the first pioneers to southern Utah camped on January 13, 1851. On the foothill above the park still stands a “Liberty Pole” (flagpole) erected by Parley P. Pratt and his men on Jan. 8, 1850, at which time he dedicated Parowan as the starting place for the colonization for the southwest. Monuments and interpretive panels are located around the park that tell the story of how pioneers from Parowan were called to settle other communities in Utah, Colorado, Arizona, Nevada, California and Oregon, thus earning the name of “Mother Town".
