Wheeler Historic Farm

The Wheeler Farm Story

began on June 17, 1886, when Sariah Hankinson Pixton married Henry Joseph Wheeler and together they made their home on this seventy-five acre farm.

Helping Henry run the prosperous dairy enterprise, Sariah and the six Wheeler children each assumed a portion of the chores around the farm. Everyday there were cows to milk, eggs to gather, and wood to chop. Churning butter, making soap, trimming wicks, and cutting ice were just a few of the many necessary tasks.

In 1969 Salt Lake County purchased the 75 acres which comprise today’s farm. Wheeler Historic Farm was placed on both the Utah State and National register of Historic Places in 1976.

Located in Murray at 6351 S. 900 E.
