Pioneer Stories and Memories

Recent Pioneer Stories


Since 1933, the National Society of Sons of Utah Pioneers has been dedicated to honoring and remembering our great pioneer forefathers and mothers.

We must never forget the great heritage they gave us – a heritage of faith in God – of devotion to family – of loyalty to church and country – of hard work and service to others – of courage in adversity – of personal integrity and unyielding determination! We must never forget!

MODERN Pioneers

Not all pioneers walked the plains. Many great men and women today reflect the pioneer virtues we honor.  Today’s challenges call out for the same faith, purpose, and sacred values that were required of the early pioneers. Who do you know that has made a big difference for good in today’s world?  

Remember, it is the character of the person, the pioneer attributes that made them what they were, the contributions that made their life rich and meaningful—these are the things to emphasize in your story.
