About the Museum
The Syracuse Museum and Cultural Center celebrates and preserves local history of the city of Syracuse and its early citizens. The main building houses extensive collections of personal belongings that came to Utah in the early pioneer days, Syracuse baseball teams, toys, music, clothing, furniture, and family histories.
The Farm and Home building houses items that show the extensive agricultural past of Syracuse when the town was the largest producer of fruit in Davis County in the early 1900s. Dairy production is also emphasized and on display is our claim to fame: the two-headed calf. Also housed in this building is a replica general dry goods store and the town's first fire truck. The Rentmeister Library of Utah history books is nestled between a blacksmith shop and memorabilia from the local soda shop.
The current exhibit focuses on SYRACUSE: Then and Now. Plan to stop by and see the huge difference of life in Syracuse in the 1800s, 1900s and 2000s!
Rentmeister Book Collection Catalog: This catalog details the rare and historic book collection donated to the museum by the Rentmeister family. The book collection is available to peruse during hours of operation or by appointment.
