The Richard W. Erickson Foundation
Nestled in the Wasatch Mountains just 30 minutes from Heber and Orem, Utah, lies one of Utah’s extraordinary gems. Curated by the foundation of the same name, the Richard W. Erickson Foundation houses a comprehensive collection of America’s history, spanning the transition from horse to steam to piston power throughout the industrial revolution and beyond. One of the largest such collections in Utah and the Mountain West, the Museum takes you back to a time when technology started easing the workload of agricultural living, as well as the rest of mankind.
