Take a stroll along rustic wooden sidewalks, get your picture taken in Old West apparel or cool off with a double scoop of ice cream from the Pioneer Village Ice Cream Parlor. Memories of the Old West abound at Lagoon each summer as pioneer artifacts transport Lagoon guests 100 years back in time.
Guns, Slingshots, Crossbows and Cannons
Pioneer Village is the reconstruction of a typical frontier community as it might have existed in the late 1800s. This community consists of 42 authentic 19th century stores, buildings, and artifacts with which they might have been furnished. Pioneer Village features one of the finest collections of small arms in the country, including guns, slingshots, crossbows and cannons. The Carriage Hall features almost every type of wheeled conveyance used at the turn of the century.
A Rock Chapel stands at the head of Pioneer Village. Originally constructed in Coalville, Utah, in 1853, the building was first used as a fort. It later served as a courthouse, a schoolhouse and a church.
