365/15 January 15-2009

365/15 January 15-2009

In the heart of this little town we moved to, Washington City, is this park. I've passed it many times but today decided the statues here would make a nice picture for my 365 Project. I was really taken when I got out to look. Not one but several statures were cast to represent the settles that came to grow Cotton in this new land in the mid 1800s. This is how this area became known as Dixie, most of these early settlers were Southerners from Alabama, Virginia, Texas Tennessee and the Carolinas. So far away from home they deemed this new land 'Utah's Dixie'. Represented here are many of the early farmers, come to carve out a home in a new and primitive land. Amazing!
