The Mountain Meadows Massacre and burial site is now a National Historic Landmark because it is a part of our nation’s history — a symbol of the courage of our pioneers, both Mormon and non-Mormon, who settled the western United States. For this reason alone, it holds significance for all of us.

We all need peaceful, solitary places to visit in nature to contemplate the power of important ideas, ideas like grace and tolerance, and the power we have to shape our own unique personal histories. We want Mountain Meadows to be that place for all the citizens of Utah, not just the descendants of the people who died there.
