Cemetery is interesting, hike behind it is great
set de 2017 • Casais
Parowan itself is a very old and quiet little town, not at all like Cedar City or St George, which are too chain hotel, chain restaurant and freeway oriented for our taste. The cemetery contains maintain frontier-era sandstone markers, at least one on the middle north side referencing multiple wives. Say no more! You can take the well-maintained trail next to the shed behind the cemetery to a level ridgetop with a few scattered, well placed benches for a spectacular view of the town, valley and Valentine Peak (a little less than one mile each way, approx 400-500 foot elevation change). It would be a fairly easy hike even for kids, if you don't mind the steady but safe and not rocky climb. The 7 mile round trip hike (2,000 foot elevation change, with a few additional ups and downs, rocky and strenuous for the last half mile) to the top of Valentine Peak from the cemetery is worth it in itself as an attraction in Parowan, if you are up to it!

A look into history
mai de 2017 • Casais
This is a beautiful cemetery enclosed by a beautiful rock fence. We were given a book at the visitor center with great information about the cemetery and the people buried there, many go back into the 1800's. There are many beautiful and unique tombstones. The book tells the history of the artist who made the stones. It is a great place to visit or to just take a walk

Beautiful Southern Utah Cemetery
abr de 2017 • Casais
One of the most beautiful cemeteries I've ever visited. Nestled up against the mouth of the canyon, it's peaceful, quiet, and very green. I have family buried there so I visit a couple times a year, and the cemetery is absolutely beautiful in the summer, and great for bike rides. The only complaint I have is that the bathrooms are always locked and the computer system hasn't worked in years, so sometimes it can be a little difficult to find a grave.

Wonderful small town cemetery
ago de 2016 • Amigos
Great for those who appreciate this kind of historical information.

The town takes very good care of the cemetery and allows decorations for special events (July 4th, Memorial Day, etc) so it's takes on a very nice look with flags, flowers and decorations. Lots of older graves and a wonderful map available at the visitor's center (Main and Center street) that had detailed info about burials as well as headstone styles. There is also a computer kiosk that's open at different times to look up information.
Rows are paved and deer roam the grounds in the winter.

Fascinating and humbling

It may seem odd to go to a cemetery to learn about history but this one is especially worthwhile. We picked up a brochure at the visitors center in Cedar City and included this stop as part of a day loop from Cedar City to the Parawan Petroglyphs then on to the cemetery and finishing out loop through Cedar Breaks.

With our brochure in hand we were able to see the grave sites of the men and women who helped established settlements in southern Utah. Having spent time in the Frontier Museum in Cedar City we had an idea of how hard it must have been to come across the US to get here but visiting this cemetery gave us an even deeper respect for those hearty soles.

Not all the headstones are written about in the flyer so you should take the time to visit the others as well. We spent an hour and a half here but you can set your own schedule to tour it.

It was one of our highlights of our trip to Cedar City.

It was snowing, and we just drove through...
nov de 2015
Obviously, stopping and reading the words on the headstones would have been interesting, but we really did not want to do that in the snow. Nonetheless, we drove through (thank goodness that the road was plowed) and it was still an interesting drive. The headstones are all different, and seeing the old ones mixed with the new ones was a wonderful transforming experience. It reminds us that life is so very ephemeral and so quickly passes. It doesn't take long to drive through, and we'd highly recommend it.

Fascinating for pioneer history buffs
jul de 2015 • Amigos
Yes, it's odd, but this cemetery really is a key attraction in Parowan. There are several interesting headstones documenting the lives of pioneers, some of which came across the plains with Brigham Young. LDS and/or Utah history buffs should find this beautiful cemetery worth their a visit.
