Sons of Utah Pioneers

The goals of the Sons of Utah Pioneers Settlement Canyon Chapter is to keep our pioneer heritage alive. We do this through histories, stories, artifacts, monuments, museums, service and scholarships. Much of this labor of love is found in the Tooele Pioneer Museum at 47 E. Vine in Tooele, as well as various statues and monuments around the county. The Tooele Pioneer cemetery, at the mouth of Settlement Canyon, is another of our projects. We are always looking for artifacts and histories, including yearbooks, as a loan or gift to be displayed for everyone’s benefit at the Tooele Pioneer Museum. If you are interested in the values of honoring past and future pioneers and in visiting their historical settings and learning more about those who settled and shaped Utah, attend our business and education meeting the first Thursday of each month.
