Daughters of Utah Pioneers Museum
in Tooele / Pioneer City Hall

The Daughters of Utah Pioneers Museum in Tooele, also known as Pioneer City Hall, was originally built in 1867, and is listed on the State Historical Register. The rock used in the building was taken from Settlement Canyon in Tooele County. Active in construction were James Hammond, William Broad, Isaac Lee, W.C. Gollaher, John Gillespie, George Atkin, George W. Bryan and John Gordon. The building was used for a courthouse, city hall, jail and amusement center until 1941, when the new city hall on North Main Street in Tooele was completed. The building was turned over to the Daughters of Utah Pioneers for a meeting place and amusement hall, later being turned into a Museum.

There is also a Pioneer Log Cabin, built in 1855, on the property beside the museum.

The public is welcome to come in and see our many pictures, histories, and artifacts from Tooele County. The DUP has also published a cookbook, “Recipes Thru Time”, with Tooele County history tidbits and pioneer pictures for $10.00. These books, as well as pioneer histories and pictures, can be purchased by going onto our website::
