As the first settlement of southern Utah (settled January 13, 1851), Parowan is affectionately called the "Mother Town of Southern Utah". Many of the original homes and business buildings still line the downtown area of the community, along with a tree-lined Main Street that take visitors on a nostalgic trip back through time.

Pioneer museums, a historic cemetery, community events and home of the Iron County Fair. Parowan is open for visitors to explore. Take a step back in time and become part of a Norman Rockwell setting in a rural, farming community that immediately feels like home. 

Parowan also is the gateway from Interstate 15 to some of the most spectacular scenic attractions, state and national parks, Utah’s Patchwork Parkway Historic Byway 143, and varied natural geological formations.
