Red Pueblo Museum
By Kelly Hilding
A visit to the Kanab area would not be complete without visiting the Red Pueblo Museum and Heritage Park in Fredonia. In 2011, Fredonia resident Dixon Spendlove completely remodeled the Fredonia Welcome Center, located at 900 N Hwy 89A, to share his extensive private collection of Indian artifacts with the world. For a small donation, Spendlove will entertain and educate with his vast knowledge of the culture and artifacts of the area’s native people. His tour and collection are quickly becoming a “must see” in the archeological community. Not only are there 300-1000 year old pottery, tools and arrowheads, there are also some of the rarest artifacts available for view by the public. Medicine bags, moccasins, jewelry and blankets complete this spectacular collection, some of which have been donated to Spendlove for display. The museum is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m.-5 p.m.
