This guided tour, led by museum staff, focuses on Moab’s fascinating and seldom told, pre-uranium history, this tour experience delves into the agricultural history of Canyon Country, following the experiences of over a dozen men and women who made a go of it on Indian Creek, creating community, raising livestock and families, who would later help establish the City of Moab, using that same grit and love of community here.
