This is the Place
Heritage Park - Utah
The This is the Place Heritage Park is located on the east side of Salt Lake City, Utah, at the foot of the Wasatch Range and near the mouth of Emigration Canyon. The location of the park is where, on July 24, 1847, Brigham Young first saw the Salt Lake Valley would soon become the Mormon pioneers' new home. The statement "This is the Place" was first attributed to Young by Wilford Woodruff more than thirty years after the pioneer advent. A Utah state holiday, Pioneer Day, occurs each year on July 24 to commemorate the Mormon pioneers' entry into the valley.
