Plans for the Bryner Pioneer Museum
The proposed Bryner Pioneer Museum is a non-profit 501 (C) 3 foundation
intended to restore the Albert and Mariah Bryner home on 68 South 100
East in Price, Utah. It will be used as a pioneer museum and a public
It was built in 1890-92 and it has had a very
diverse history. We want to showcase that history by involving the
residents of the area in renovating, documenting and running the museum.
To date, we have replaced the roof with cedar shakes. We have
obtained funds to install a security system which will be
maintained in perpetuity, and this website has been funded
We have obtained a $5,000 matching grant from the
Utah Historical Commission, which will be used to
restore the house. The Cynthia Woods Mitchell fund has
given us a $3,000 matching grant to hire an architect.
We have in place an excellent board of directors, Helen O.
Smith, Bryce Bryner, Stacy Himonas, Neil Warren, Rita Alderson,
Bruce Bryner, Jolene Hannah,and Lynda Varner. Marvin Mutz
is the CFO, Beth Gotfredson is the secretary and Sue Christensen
will be the museum director.
We have need for volunteers to help with the restoration,
and after the museum is opened, we will need docents,
teachers of arts and crafts, such as making of candles,
soap, cheese, quilts, etc.
