The Far West Country Store opened for business in the summer of 2006. We offer light refreshment for travelers in a historic-styled log house with the comfort of modern climate control. We have gifts and souvenirs, including pioneer era accessories and crafts. We are an authorized distributor for Deseret Book, and also carry unique books, woodwork and art work.
We are pleased to offer these conveniences, but there is much more we have in store for you. The forty acres owned by FWHS is zoned and mapped for a Conference Center, Resource Library, Subsistence Garden, several Pioneer Cabins, and a replica of Brigham Young’s New York barn. The Village will be open to the public for casual visits or extended stays. We will also hold on-site tours, lectures, and symposiums on the history of Far West (circa 1838-1840) and other early Mormon settlements, activities, and religious development.
Our current project is the conversion of the on-property Victorian Farm house into a Bed and Breakfast. Far from the bustle of the city, the historic country setting will be an unparalleled experience for its convenient access to such spiritually significant places as the cornerstone of the Far West Temple and Adam-Ondi-Ahman.
The development of the Far West Historical Village is a massive project that will require extensive financial resources. If you would like to be a contributing member of FWHS and help make this vision a reality, please contact us. If you want to have an idea about Dove Medical Press, continue reading here.
We look forward to seeing you. We would be glad to answer any questions you have as you plan your LDS history vacation. Contact us for more information.
