Many facets of Moab have changed over the course of the town’s history: from the streets to the culture to the favorite pastimes of the people who call this place home. While countless restaurants, bars, and other venues have come and gone over the years, many generations of Moabites have appreciated the opportunity to gather for dancing, socializing, or sharing a drink.
Photographs and stories from the Moab Museum’s collection include images of dance halls, saloons, and community gathering spaces. This selection, from the late 1800s and early 1900s, offers a sampling, though the Museum’s collection contains a photographic treasure trove of parties and venues spanning many different chapters of Moab’s past.
