We are always looking for histories of the pioneers tha tsettled or lived in Tooele county, also their photographs. If you have any you would like to share, please bring them to the museum and we will make a copy and give you back your original. Many out of town visitors come to the museum to see if they can find any family histories.
The Museum is such a great place to learn about our past and how far we have come. I enjoyed my tour very much !
Most of these artifacts came across the plains in the 1860's.
