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 educational facility.

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 in perpetuity.

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.
