Territorial Statehouse, Fillmore, Utah

Territorial Statehouse in Fillmore

Territorial Statehouse State Park Museum in Fillmore is Utah's oldest existing governmental building. Today, the park includes a museum, store, auditorium, garden, and picnic area.

Fillmore, Utah

Named for U.S. President Millard Fillmore, the town of Fillmore (located in Millard County) was the first capital of what was then known as the Utah Territory. Plans for a monumental statehouse were drawn and one wing built, but before its completion, the capital was moved to more populated Salt Lake City. You can still catch a glimpse of historic Fillmore at the Territorial Statehouse State Park. The volcanic formations that molded Tabernacle Hill reminded early settlers of the Mormon Tabernacle in Salt Lake City. In the area, hikers can explore unique cones and lava-tube caves. To the south, Cove Fort, constructed in 1867 on orders from Brigham Young, discouraged attacks during the Black Hawk War and provided a welcome respite for travelers in the area.
