William Atkin Home


  • Built in Atkinville, Utah 1877
  • Replicated in 2001

William Atkin built this home after he was assigned to go south to strengthen the Southern Utah settlements.  The house was located eight miles south of St. George on a 160-acre farm that later became the one-family town of Atkinville. With time, the Atkins also created a park, which became a favorite recreation and picnic area for locals. A storm and flood nearly destroyed Atkinville in 1906, but some of the original foundation stones were used in the construction of this replica.
