KAYSVILLE — Plans to bring a pioneer cabin to Heritage Park got the nod from city council members last month.

Members of the Kaysville company of Daughters of Utah Pioneers approached the city about placing a cabin in the northwest corner of the park.

With the support of the council, the company will start a search for a cabin and hopes to locate one that’s approximately 300 square feet or smaller.

“We will move it, furnish it and care for it,” said Sharon Hadley, president of the company. “Our hopes are that someone may be willing to donate it for the purpose of educating our children about life in pioneer times.”

Hadley volunteered at This Is The Place Heritage Park for several years. 

When children tour pioneer cabins, some might ask where the refrigerator is  and others wonder how to turn on the stove, she said.

“You don’t get cereal out of the cupboard, you get milk and eggs out of the barn” for breakfast, she said.

Hadley and others in the Kaysville company own enough furnishings between them to fill the cabin, she said.

They would plan on opening it three afternoons a week during the summer months.

“We’d have someone tell pioneer stories and teach crafts and play games and tell them what life was like in the day of the pioneer child,” said Hadley.

“Kids get really excited about it,” she said. “It could be really fun.”
