Iowa West Foundation awards grant to inventory Mormon Trail sites
OAKLAND — The Iowa West Foundation, headquartered in Council Bluffs, has awarded a $14,500 grant to Golden Hills Resource Conservation and Development (RC&D) to inventory known and previously undiscovered historic Mormon Trail sites across Iowa. The inventory will include sites on the Mormon Pioneer Trail and Mormon Handcart Trail across southwest Iowa.
Golden Hills RC&D has partnered with Iowa Valley RC&D of Amana and Pathfinders RC&D of Fairfield that will work in south-central and southeast Iowa, respectively.
By inventorying these historic sites, Golden Hills RC&D hopes to preserve and interpret the role Iowa played in the Mormon migration from Nauvoo, Ill., westward.
