Pioneer Heritage Gardens Dedicated in Manti, Utah

Just below Temple Hill in Manti, Utah, USA, visitors to the small community in central Utah will find a new garden honoring the pioneers who settled the Sanpete Valley in 1849.

The Pioneer Heritage Gardens, built by the Central Utah Pioneer Association, a 501c3 nonprofit corporation, sits just below the Manti Utah Temple. The project was dedicated on Saturday, June 2, more than 30 years after it was envisioned.

Two ceremonies were held in conjunction with the dedicatory events—one on Saturday morning in the Pioneer Heritage Gardens, and another that afternoon at the Snow College Activities Center in Ephraim, Utah, at which a portion of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and Orchestra at Temple Square performed.
