Four of Kanab’s oldest surviving historic homes will be open to the public from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. on October 23 as part of the Fourth Annual Kanab Heritage  Storytelling Festival. These houses, built early in the history of our town, display stunning architectural features and their rooms hold intriguing tales of early Kanab people who lived in them well over a century ago.

This is a rare opportunity for anyone interested in the history of Kanab as well as those who enjoy being in places where people making history spent important moments relaxing with families and friends.  It is the golden opportunity for you to enter these places and hear some of the stories of what took place there, told by those who know them best.

It has been many years since the Kanab Heritage Board has arranged tours of our historic homes, so don’t miss this opportunity. Tickets may be purchased at Zion Pharmacy, Willow Canyon or just prior to the home tour. Meet at the Kane County Visitor Center between the hours of 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.

Following the home tour, from 3 to 7 p.m., the festival will continue at the Kanab City Jacob Hamblin Park with music, old-time games, contests, demonstrations of home making skills and tales told by master storytellers. Refreshments, including western BBQ, will be available for purchase. For further information, call 435.644.5532 or email tommar@kanab.net.
