General Information

Territorial Statehouse State Museum
Copyright: - Utah State Parks & Recreation
Territorial Statehouse State Museum
Description - The Territorial Statehouse Museum is a heritage site within the Utah Parks and Recreation System. This abandoned capitol building is Utah's oldest existing government building. It was constructed before the initial meeting of the territorial legislature in 1855. The south wing of the structure was the only portion erected before the state capitol was moved back to Salt Lake City. Today it serves as a museum with exhibits dedicated to the territorial period in Utah history. The Statehouse, and three acres of land surrounding it, was set aside as Utah's first state park in 1957.

Attractions - Facilities at this state park include picnic grounds, gardens and interpretive exhibits. Drinking water and modern restrooms are available for visitors to the park. This park is open for day-use only.

Recreation - The Territorial Statehouse is open for historical interpretation. The grounds surrounding the structure are well manicured and suited for picnicking and plant identification. Hiking, biking, off-road vehicle use and camping opportunities are present nearby in the Fishlake National Forest.

Climate - Southwestern Utah, like other regions of the state, is arid, receiving approximately 12 inches of rain per year. The fall and spring are the most pleasant times to visit Territorial Statehouse Museum, and also the most crowded, with warm days and cool nights. Summer brings very hot days and visitors are encouraged to curb activities during the afternoons. In winter expect warm days and very cold nights.

Location - This state-administered museum is located in the southwestern Utah town of Fillmore. It is accessible from Interstate 15.
