The Frontier Museum is housed in a century old barn once used as storage for the L. H. Redd Mercantile. The barn was moved from its original site and renovated to house the museum by the Monticello Foundation. The original post and beam construction is visible inside. Frontier life as it was lived on the edge of the Great Sage Plain over 100 years ago is on display. A visit to the museum is a passage through time via the day-to-day items used by our parents, grandparents, and great-grandparents. Exhibits include vintage clothing and household items. Items from famed Canyonlands tour guide Kent Frost, who brought the region to the worlds attention are on display. Early telephones, relics from ancient native people, and remains from the Home of Truth are on display. Cowboys, Indians, outlaws, farmers, and shopkeepers are represented.
