On Saturday, Sept. 25, the Centerville Company of the Daughters of the Utah Pioneers is hosting a day of storytelling and study about those pioneers in conjunction with Utah Free Museum Day.
The event is planned at the Centerville DUP cabin, a reproduction of pioneer cabins, at 160 S. 300 East between noon and 4 p.m., when the public may come and hear a story or two, or even share stories of their ancestors. During periods when no story is being told, area residents may study some of the files the company has collected on Centerville pioneers.
Built by the Sagamore camp in 1934, the cabin was called”Carolina Cabin” after Carolina Cherry Harris, who was Centerville’s only surviving pioneer when the cabin was built. She helped fund its construction.
The day of storytelling is being held as part of a nationwide Smithsonian Museum Day.
The day is planned as a day of celebration of the ways museums enrich our lives and our communities.
