Heritage in Utah!
Utah is rich with many different cultures. It all started with people looking for a new, but safe home for religious freedom. Th ey staked their little metaphorical flags here, bringing with them their European cultures as they integrated with the native denizens.
They celebrate early traditions from city to towns across the state and hold pageants, plays and other events that share Utah's heritage as well as culture.
Utah loves its historical buildings; many of which have been turned to bed and breakfasts or museums.
A bit of history:
"Believing the Mormons were rebelling against the laws of the United States, President James Buchanan dispatched 3,500 troops, nearly one third of the entire U.S. Army, to suppress the rumored rebellion in Utah. Buchanan believed that Democrats and Republicans, Northerners and Southerners, could unite in an attempt to restore order to Utah, and he could thus divert attention away from the crisis over slavery and the tensions between the North and South." ~utahvalley.com
