Housed in the oldest school building in the state of Utah are thousands of relics from the days of the early pioneers. Included in this Old Bell School House Museum are over 300 portraits of pioneers. The “Four Stages of Emma Hale Smith” is also on exhibit, featuring authentic dresses worn by Emma, the wife of the Mormon prophet, Joseph Smith.
There are also two original log cabins and a granary located in Pioneer Park.
Pioneer Log Cabin The Daughters of Utah Pioneers built this "larger-than-usual" cabin to house artifacts. It is found on the historical site across the lot from the DUP Old Bell School Museum. Open by appointment.
The Orlando Herron Log Cabin is believed to be the first log cabin built in Pleasant Grove, dating back to 1850. Located behind (attached to) a house that was being demolished by a developer, the cabin was saved and moved near the historic Old Bell School House in Pioneer Park in 2005.
This granary was built in 1874 over the original Nelson dugout. It was moved to the present site March 2, 1993, to become a part of the historical complex by the DUP Old Bell School Museum. Tours available by appointment or read the information on the marker in front of the granary.
