The Scipio Round Valley Camp Museum

The Scipio Round Valley Camp Museum

The Scipio Round Valley Camp Museum was one of hundreds of public works buildings that was built during FDR’s administration in the 1930s.

The Museum has a plaque pertaining to the founding of Scipio by thirteen families of Mormon settlers in 1863.

The families had lived in Round Valley before settling Scipio, but Brigham Young had encouraged the family to live in the valley, instead of in the mountains, so it would be easier to fend off Indian attacks.
