Brigham where is the store? Pioneers couldn't just buy food where did they get it?

Presented by Daughters of Utah Pioneers - McQuarrie Memorial Museum, St. George at Daughters of Utah Pioneers - McQuarrie Memorial Museum, Saint George UT

Brigham where is the store? Pioneers couldn't just buy food where did they get it?

Have you ever thought of the challenges the early settlers faced in getting food? We will have a presentation about those early settlement days in Washington County and the ways the pioneers solved the daily problem of having enough to eat.

Have you ever gone to the grocery store and couldn’t find what you wanted to buy for dinner?  The early settlers of southern Utah couldn’t go to the store – there weren’t any!  The only things they had to eat were the items they brought with them from the Salt Lake Valley, or what they found growing naturally.  What we see now as a beautiful, lush area, was only a barren desert.  There was very little that grew in the wilds that the pioneers had ever eaten.  What were they to do?
