Territorial Statehouse State Park


Location:Within the city limits of Fillmore, off the I-15 business loop.
Facilities:Picnic area, group pavilion, garden, museum, store, auditorium, historic site.
Special Features:Utah's oldest existing governmental building is the Territorial Statehouse in Fillmore. In anticipation of Utah's statehood, Brigham Young directed construction of the building to house the state's capitol, but only the south wing was ever completed. The existing portion was finished in time for the 1855 meeting of the territorial legislature, which was the only full session held in the old statehouse. In 1858, the seat of government was returned to Salt Lake City. The Territorial Statehouse was reopened as a museum in 1930 and houses a pioneer collection, as well as items from the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
