DUP Museum has two new display cases
Doug and Karen Wickliffe have donated two display cases to the DUP Museum. They were used in the Williams Store years ago and have been refurbished. Recently members of the DUP filled them with items in the museum. The DUP appreciates the generosity of Wickliffes and other community members.
The purpose of the museum is to preserve, display and share pioneer artifacts and pictures. Currently, they have over 600 artifacts and pictures to share with the community. The DUP says that It is a pleasure to guide visitors through the museum. There is so much history of the early settlers of Morgan County in the museum.
The DUP said that it has been exciting to have visits from the fourth grade classes and some of the Morgan seventh grade students last year, and they look forward to more visits from students.
The mission of Daughters of Utah Pioneers Museums is to collect, preserve and display artifacts belonging to Utah Pioneers who settled the Territory of Deseret from 1847 to May 10, 1869, and those artifacts which represent the local community. This includes preserving the cabins and buildings constructed in settling their communities.
The Morgan County DUP has about 130 members and six camps. In their last fiscal year, they had over 500 visitors to their museum. There is never any admission fee, as they love sharing their heritage.
