Great historic site. Story about one man and his family that came to build a fort for the church. The fort became the center for Telegraph and mail carriers and cowboys alike. There's some really great innovations that Pioneers came up with.. take the tour.

The Cove Fort, was an excellent stop for our family. Taking under an hour with an informative short video, this historic spot really showcased the grit, ingenuity and thoughtfulness of the areas founders. Thank you Elder Bateman for the tour!

The staff were so friendly. It is a fort that was restored by the LDS church. It is worth the stop to take in a little history.

I am not sure if the dogs would be allowed. Much of the exhibit is outside. It is an LDS run facility and the missionaries are usually very accomodating.
