Knitting sampler and mannequin.

100 year Old Fruitcake

The cake and bacon are still there. Take the guided tour if offered and you can see other oddities, like a hand-carved wooden chain with over 125 links and several caged, round balls, and a 15 foot hand-knitted sampler scarf with 80 knitting patterns on it. There is also a life size painting of Jesus with a flock of lambs painted so the eyes and legs of all appear to orient and follow you. Ah. Utah. [Flo, 07/19/2015]

100+ year-old Fruitcake, Senior Bacon

Both the fruitcake and the bacon are still there and are attended by an older gentleman who was funny and full of local knowledge. A fun stop.

Old side of bacon.

66 Year Old Slab of Bacon

The 66-year-old slab of bacon sits in the room adjacent to the 104-year-old fruitcake in the Hurricane Valley Heritage Museum. The fruitcake I can understand, but it's hard to understand how someone could forget bacon!

100+ Year Old Fruitcake

The now 104-year-old fruitcake is still there. Yikes. It sits in a glass cake server among a whole host of pioneer-era artifacts. Great little museum. Don't miss the 66-year-old slab of bacon in the other room!
