Utah State History has launched a new website. “I Love History” (http://ilovehistory.utah.gov ) engages kids in Utah’s history and encourages critical thinking and understanding. “This new website is a valuable resource for young people, teachers, and anyone interested in Utah’s past,” says Philip F. Notarianni, State History director. “It offers people a vision of possibilities, and a motivation to contribute to Utah’s unfolding story.”

Topics include:
§ People: groups who have come and gone through Utah, including prehistoric peoples, American Indian groups, explorers and trappers, Mormon settlers, other immigrants, and other individuals.

§ Place: Utah’s land and geography, Utah’s counties and built environment.

§ Events in time: stories of important events in Utah history and an interactive timeline of world and Utah history.

§ Topics: special topics in Utah history.

§ Fun and games: Fremont matching game, History Explorers game and other fun learning games.

The site draws from publications that State History has contributed to or produced, including the Utah Historical Quarterly, the Utah History Encyclopedia, Beehive History, Currents, the Centennial County History Series, and A History of Utah’s American Indians, as well as collections held by State History.

This website is a work in progress; State History welcomes your input. Contact Alycia Aldrich at 801.533.3556 or email aaldrich@utah.gov with your comments or suggestions.


State History serves the citizens of Utah by helping to make history accessible, exciting, and relevant—and integral to the economy and culture of the state. State History is a division of the Utah Department of Community and Culture (www.community.utah.gov ).
