Fremont Indian State Park and Museum FREMONT INDIAN STATE PARK AND MUSEUM O ne thousand years ago, the valleys along what is now Interstate 70 near Sevier, Utah were home to the largest community of Fremont Indians ever discovered. Their rock art and structures are still visible in the canyons of Fremont Indian State Park. A film, artifacts, hands-on activities, rock art tours, and exhibits reveal the lives of the Fremont Indians. More than a museum, Fremont Indian State Park also offers camping and access to the Paiute ATV Trail. HISTORY W hile there is no evidence that Piute Indians ever lived in Clear Creek Canyon, they traveled seasonally through the canyon since about A.D. 1400. They used the canyon and its tributaries for hunting and gathering seeds and pinenuts. The trail through Clear Creek Canyon was the only route between hunting areas on different sides of the Pahvant and Tusher mountain ranges. A number of the rock art panels within the park are attributed to the Piute and have inspired park signs and trail guides. The Piute Trail through Clear Creek Canyon was later used by others. In his explorations, Jedediah Smith came through the canyon in 1826. The trail was improved into a wagon road in 1872. A toll of 25 cents per wagon was charged to use the road for the next 25 years. In 1877, the first year-round homesteaders, John Smiley Lott and his two wives settled in the canyon. A school was built for the Lott grandchildren in 1895. In the 1890s, gold was discovered at Kimberly, making Clear Creek Canyon an important route to the railroad at Sevier. During the 20th century, farming was marginal at best and most families had employment out of the canyon. Construction of I-70 in the 1980s caused most of the canyon’s inhabitants to leave. Fremont Indian State Park and Museum opened in 1987. USE FEES: A Special Use Permit is required for all special events, concessions and commercial or professional filming and photography. PERMITS: lear Creek Canyon is home to many animal species such as deer, cottontail rabbits, squirrels and raptors. Among the more elusive animals living in the area are mountain lions, bobcats, coyotes, ringtails and foxes. Though rarely seen, beaver are plentiful as evidenced by the many fallen trees and dams. Beware of rattlesnakes, which are sighted frequently in summer months. C he Fremont Indians were agriculturalists who lived from about A.D. 400 to 1300 in north and central Utah and adjacent parts of Colorado, Idaho and Nevada. The Fremont who lived in Clear Creek Canyon are thought to have come from hunters and gatherers who previously lived in this location, and were also influenced by the Ancestral Puebloan (Anasazi) who introduced corn and pottery, making year-round settlements possible. PLANTS AND ANIMALS THE PEOPLE T Resources in Clear Creek Canyon, with its ample water and marshes, resulted in different subsistence needs than in other Fremont areas. Eat
