In the heart of Morgan City is a historical treasure.  The Daughters of the Utah Pioneers operate a Museum filled with Morgan’s history.  
During the summer months the museum is open on Saturdays for the general public.  Outside of this time the museum may be viewed by appoint.  
Contained within the museum walls are photos of Morgan Settlers, children’s toys from the past, musical instruments, and many other items.  There is also a display of original items from the Morgan Tabernacle.  
Those that volunteer there are happy to share with you events from the past and help you find any connection you may have to Morgan’s past.  Whether your ancestors are from Morgan, or you just want to share a little of the County’s rich past, the Daughters of the Utah Pioneers can help you travel back in time and learn a little about those who came before us.
The DUP is also raffling off a quilt to raise money.  It is a beautiful work.  While you're there take a minute and enter the raffle.
To schedule a visit contact Angela at (801) 829-4164,  DeAnn at (801) 389-6180,  Fern at (801) 829-3316, or Fran at (801) 829-3577.  If you are interested in becoming a member of the DUP any of these individuals can also help you.
