"For reasons I do not completely understand, when you walk through the gates of Rock Creek Hollow along the Mormon Trail in Wyoming, you seem to naturally know to sweep your hat from your head. As you make your way forward, you come to a tiny fenced-in area with two stone markers, one large and the other small, but both built and dedicated to a people who lived and died a long time ago. Who were those people and what is their story? What exactly happened here that makes this place feel as if you are walking on sacred ground?
Please watch our website for dates and location.
It was these types of feelings and questions that became the foundation of what is now called The Mormon Handcart Pageant. As we prayerfully prepared for our first season, we secretly wondered if anyone would really come!
Well, two nights and over sixty-three hundred people later we knew that we were on our way. With the Lord's blessings, we were able to capture the "spirit of the trail" and literally bring it to Nephi.
And now, at the end of season five the pageant has been performed for an estimated seventy-two thousand souls.
We invite each of you to come to the pageant and feel what is there to be felt, then gather the rest of your friends and family and come again."
