Panguitch was first settled in March 1864, when Jens Nielsen, a Danish convert to the Mormon faith, led a group of pioneers eastward from Parowan and Beaver to the Sevier River. It is situated near the spectacular Bryce Canyon National Park, which features red and orange rock formations spread out through the Canyon. It’s quite unique….some parts of it look similar to the Grand Canyon.
It’s at 6,600 ft elevation and has a population of about 1,600.
