Inscription.  Visitors to Panguitch, Utah will enjoy the opportunity to view many of the historic structures in this community which was settled by Mormon pioneers.

Log cabins and wood homes also make their appearance on the Wild West streets of Panguitch. Preserved and protected by the local community, tourists can visit the Alexander cabin at the city park on the north entrance of town. This historic tribute to the city's pioneers was built in 1890 by Thomas Murphy Alexander, and restored as a Utah Centennial Project by the Panguitch Heritage Foundation. The cabin contains artifacts that give visitors a glimpse into the lifestyle of early pioneers.
