The community of Short Creek, straddling the Utah-Arizona has always been tucked away. While this was initially incidental, it became very helpful once post-Second Manifesto Mormon fundamentalists began to gather there. Join us on a tour of this fascinating outpost of Mormon history as we visit several key sites in the development of this community.
