​​​​The McQuarrie Memorial Museum is open to the public and admission is free.  The Museum is owned and operated by the three Washington County Companies of the Daughters of Utah Pioneers (DUP); Washington, Washington East and Washington West.

The objective of the organization of the Daughters of Utah Pioneers is to preserve our pioneer heritage and to honor the names and memories of those pioneers who came to Utah prior to May 10, 1869.  To reach our objective, we desire to educate our community, visitors and especially our children about the pioneers who settled what is now called Washington County.

Tours are available for family and friends.  If you want a special tour for a group, it can be arranged.


We are proud to list the sponsors whose funding have provided signs, printed materials and other necessary projects.  Thank you for your support!!
