This is the Place Heritage Park Tours

The 450-acre (182-hectare) ‘This Is The Place’ Heritage Park is dedicated to the 1847 arrival of the Mormons to Salt Lake City. It was here that Brigham Young first laid eyes on the valley that was to become the Mormon pioneers' new home, where they would settle and build their State of Deseret. Over the next several years, tens of thousands of Mormon pioneers would make their home here.

The centerpiece of the park is the living-history Deseret Village, where from June through August, costumed docents reenact what life was like in the mid-19th century. The village features 41 pioneer homes and other historical buildings, some of which are originals, such as Brigham Young's farmhouse, while others are replicas.

Practical Info

The park is located on the east side of Salt Lake City at the foot of the Wasatch Range, near the mouth of Emigration Canyon. Admission to the park is free, but tickets to the historical village (including a train ride and activities) cost $10/$7 adult/child from June through August. The rest of the year access to the village is limited to varying degrees at reduced prices.
