Springville Heritage Park

Dedicated to the Two Hundredth Anniversary of the United States of America and sponsored by the Utah American revolution Bicentennial Commission and Springville Federated Women’s Clubs.

An official Bicentennial project of the sponsors, this park is on property acquired by Jacob Houtz in 1851.  In 1915 it became a federal fish hatchery and was abandoned in 1922.  Until deeded to Springville City in 1976 for exclusive park use, the site was neglected and unkempt.
