Description:
The Sons of Utah Pioneers (SUP) currently has 375 markers installed with new ones in process all the time. They are located from Eastern Canada to California on the American continent, with another one in Greece.

Expanded Description:
The National Society of The Sons of Utah Pioneers (SUP) was organized for the purpose of keeping alive the history and memory of Mormon Pioneers and others who came to the Salt Lake Valley to help settle the West and find security from those who would destroy them and their beliefs.

The SUP was organized on March 29, 1933, with the following goals:

Preserve the memory and heritage of the early pioneers of the Utah Territory. “We honor the pioneers for their faith in God; devotion to family; loyalty to church and country; hard work and service to others; courage in adversity; personal integrity; and unyielding determination.”

Honor Present-day pioneers worldwide in many walks of life, who exemplify these same qualities of character.

Teach these same qualities to the youth who will be tomorrow’s pioneers.

To date, the SUP has placed 375+ historical markers at physical to commemorate places, events, or persons of particular historical significance to Utah (and, indeed, the entire American West).

The goal of this category is to waymark all of the historic markers placed by the SUP organization around the world.
