Quilt Walk Park

Description

The Quilt Walk Park honors the hardship endured by the families who settled Panguitch in March of 1864. After arriving in the valley, the pioneers cleared land, planted crops and installed an irrigation system. Being a high-altitude valley, winter came early and the crops were destroyed. Facing possible starvation, seven men left for Parowan during a snow storm. They got as far as the mountains before getting stuck in deep snow drifts. The men spread out a quilt, knelt down and prayed for help. Upon standing, they realized they had not sunk in the snow. They then laid out quilts and walk across them to Parowan, where they got food and returned back to Panguitch by the same method.
