American West Heritage Center

American West Heritage Center Review

To learn about Cache Valley's history from 1820 to 1920, drive 6 mi south of Logan to visit this living-history complex that spans 160 acres. At the farm, antique implements are on display, draft horses still pull their weight, docents dressed in period clothing demonstrate sheep shearing and quilting, and special events take place throughout the year. The Festival of the American West, held at the center in late July–early August, features additional displays and reenactments, along with food booths, cowboy poetry readings, and concerts. In addition to viewing, visitors can shop for authentic Western jewelry, and clothing.
