This delightful Downtown district has a collection of early 20th century buildings, now restored, which make a great place to visit. Browse the shops, sample an old fashioned soda, linger in the art galleries or enjoy a home-cooked meal in one of the local restaurants.

Buildings include the Old Union Pacific Depot, where visitors would arrive by train and transfer to open-top buses to visit the National Parks in Utah. The building now houses an antiques shop and restaurant which has old photographs of the former Depot. The Cedar Motel, Cooperative Store and Drug Store all have new businesses within the historic buildings, and there is a Heritage Community Theater nearby.

One of the highlights of Historic Downtown Cedar City is the Old Rock Church, built by volunteer workers using local materials during the Great Depression. The workmanship reflects the local colored stone and is beautifully finished.
