Cries of Freedom

Thursday, Friday and Saturday — 1:00, 4:00 and 7:00 p.m.  Showhouse 2

In its 16th season, Cries of Freedom is the 70-minute main course but it is more than an inspiring musical. Here are some of the side dishes: The Ellis Island experience, the Second Continental Congress experience; taking home paintings and documents from our founding era; watching official military flag ceremonies and demonstrations; walking through our field of flags; visiting with our founders. With the current struggles of our country and the world you’ll find the answers with a dose of good, old-fashioned, 4th of July AMERICA!

American Heritage Museum

The Brent and Charlene Ashworth Collection

Open Thursday, Friday and Saturday — 10:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. Room 101

Remember how things used to be? Probably not, that’s why you need to be reminded. Brent Ashworth has done the heavy lifting for you so you can see with your own eyes monumental historical artifacts. Mr. Ashworth has amassed a prodigious collection of relics from our nation’s past: Colonial artifacts, Civil War antiquities, rare sports memorabilia, Mormon relics and much more! Nowhere will you see so many rare and invaluable documents and memorabilia. Come and see these national treasures and learn from the master of history himself.

Live Swearing in Ceremony!

Friday, July 5 — 2:30 p.m. Showhouse 2

Back by popular demand, the Department of Homeland Security will be conducting a swearing in ceremony of citizen candidates. This 30-minute program is packed with patriotic music, speeches and new citizen testimonials. The public is welcome.
