Cove Fort8 Utah Mormon Historic Sites to Add to Your Vacation Plans

You may think your pillow fort skills are amazing, but pioneers took building forts to a whole new level. Cove Fort in Millard County was built between April and November 1867 and is the only fort built by Latter-day Saints in the 1800s that still stands. Built as a place of refuge for early Mormon pioneers, you can take a tour inside the lava-rock walls and peak into early Mormon history. Summer tours (May-August) start at 8 a.m. and go until dusk.
