Syracuse City Museum

Syracuse City Museum and BarnAbout the Museum

The Syracuse Museum and Cultural Center celebrates and preserves the local history of the city of Syracuse and its early citizens. The main building houses extensive collections of personal belongings that came to Utah in the early pioneer days, Syracuse baseball teams, toys and music, clothing and furniture, and family histories.

The Barn Building houses items that show the extensive agricultural past of Syracuse when the town was the largest producer of fruit in Davis County in the early 1900s. Dairy production is also emphasized and on display is our claim to fame: the two-headed calf. Also housed in this building is a replica general dry goods store and the town’s first fire truck. The Rentmeister Library of Utah history books is nestled between a blacksmith shop and memorabilia from the local soda shop.
