Provo Pioneer Village

Provo Pioneer Village Welcome to the PROVO PIONEER VILLAGE! As our Village Mayor always says, “The things in this VILLAGE aren’t meant to look old, they are OLD!”
(26)

The Provo Pioneer Village contains the original structures built by the first pioneers in the area. The residential section contains three family dwellings, a well, outhouse, a granary, a corncrib, and a loafing shed; additionally, the village includes blacksmith, cooper, tanner shops, a wood shop, mercantile, and a schoolhouse.

We are disappointed to share with you that this year‘s Christmas Event will need to be CANCELLED.

Construction in front of our village has made accessibility limited and difficult for guests to maneuver.

Due to recent construction activity, we feel it best to cancel this year’s event.

If you could spread the word, we would be grateful.

We appreciate your support and understanding, and we hope you have a wonderful Holiday Season.

Happy Christmas! 🤠

Orchards played an important role in pioneer agriculture. Communities often planted acres of fruit bearing trees.

Would you rather have a PEACH or an APPLE to snack on?
