Blows your mind to see how large families lived in the pioneer times. Would be nicer if it were staffed, open and more of the history described.

It was very interesting to learn about this cabin. I cannot imagine raising 13 kids in the cabin with my husband. The views from the cabin are incredible. The signs were very informative. You can peek in the windows of the cabin but you cannot...More

Cool piece of history. Great pull out. Takes 5-10 minutes. Good up-close photos of the Capitol reefs. Amazing that settlers lived here. Just pull off the side of the road (RT 24) as you are driving through Capitol Reef. Can't miss it.

This cabin is located right on the highway. It is hard to believe that a large family lived in this small place.It is quite a picturesque spot, with nice backdrops for photos. There is also plenty of room to wander around this area.

An interesting little home, well worth stopping to read the information board outside explaining about the family that lived there and their struggles. How the US has changed in such a short time is bought home when you view this little home and try to...More

This one only takes five minutes to see and the history here teleports you to another time.I can't believe folks lived this way. Boy are we spoiled. Just pulloff route 24 at the cabin and take a few steps.

It is just by the side of the road, worth a stop to know the story of this settler family, who lived inside the small house.

Very nice little stone cabin in great location - hard to imagine a family with 13 children living there! Worth stopping by it to see the construction techniques and to try to envision the family living there.......
