The American West Heritage Center (AWHC) is a living history museum located in northern Utah’s Cache Valley at the foot of the Wellsville Mountains. The AWHC was organized in 1995 when two Utah State University programs, the Ronald V. Jensen Historical Farm and the Festival of the American West, merged to form a non-profit foundation. The Foundation’s activities are centered around and focus on the preservation of the living history within our time period of 1820-1920.
The AWHC utilizes its picturesque setting to tell the story of the history of the American West for this time period. This unique story is told at the AWHC through living history and live reenactment venues, school group field trips, summer camps, museum exhibits, live demonstrations, workshops, seasonal festivals and events, student internships, handcart treks and other activities that target a wide variety of visitors.
