2019 Mormon Pioneer National Historic Trail Highlights

Mormon Trails Association (MTA)


Website — MTA reworked its website (mormontrails.org) and added new material and links.

Partnerships — NPS entered into a partnership certification agreement with The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints for Martin’s Cove: Mormon Trail Site in Alcova, WY.


Signage — NPS contracted with the 106 Group to develop eight interpretive waysides and two orientation panels to enhance visitor experiences along the trail across Iowa. NPS helped dedicate the newly certified Richardson’s Point site in Iowa, and its new entrance sign was installed by the Iowa MTA.


Documentation — NPS staff revised and updated the Auto Tour Route guide for the trail across Iowa for reprinting using information provided by two Iowa MTA members (who drove the trail’s entire auto route).
