Honoring our Pioneer Forefathers in St George and Washingon City, Utah since 1933

Do you have pioneer ancestors that emigrated to or traveled through Utah?  Are you interested in learning more about the pioneer history of our area?  Are you, in your own way, a pioneer to Southern Utah?  Do you think that our society today would be better off if we had a greater awareness of the values and sacrifices of our pioneer ancestors and held them greater esteem?

If you answered "Yes!" to any of those questions, then you need to be a member of the Sons of Utah Pioneers!  Our monthly meetings and treks, symposiums, and service projects are all focused on preserving and honoring our pioneer heritage.  

Not only that, but we have fun doing it!  We would love to have you join with us!

Upcoming Events and Activities

  • Come to know our fathers, and turn our hearts to them.  

  • Preserve the memory and heritage of the early pioneers of the Utah Territory and the western U.S.

  • Honor present-day pioneers worldwide who exemplify these same qualities of character.

  • Teach these same qualities to the youth who will be tomorrow’s pioneers.
