I have been driving by a beautiful farm, on acres of land, for several months now. I finally went to investigate (for Trail Tuesday) and found a wonderful surprise. It is the Hela Seegmiller Historical Farm. It is located at 2592 South 3000 East in St. George (Little Valley), Utah.
This beautiful farm is park of St. George City Parks and was built on land that was a workable farm. The Seegmiller family gifted the land to the City of St. George so that the city would build an historical farm with the look of the original homestead. I spent my time walking around the grounds and enjoyed every minute. There is a barn (pavilion) which holds 134 people, picnic tables, a garden area, an orchard, corrals, and other smaller buildings. There are drinking fountains and restrooms. Goats, chickens and cows live at the farm.
You can reserve the park in 4 hour reservation times for $240.00. This is a great place for a wedding reception, a family reunion or just a place to hang out and have a picnic. The park is open from 7:00am – 10:00pm and there is ample parking.
I hope to visit this beautiful, historical farm many times in the near future.
