Morgan, UT: Rachel Turk on the History of Morgan and the Preservation of Commercial Street
Show Notes

In this episode, I talk to Rachel Turk, County Historian, Morgan County Historical Society, Morgan, Utah. That’s right, Utah. The podcast is expanding to rural towns in Utah! The plan is to alternate between rural Idaho and rural Utah towns each month and I’m thrilled to have Morgan as the first rural Utah town on the podcast. Rachel and I talk about her role as County Historian, how she got the position, and the pros and cons of coming to it as an outsider. We talk about her work assisting with the preservation and redevelopment of Morgan’s Commercial Street and about the opportunities and challenges facing Morgan and towns like it. We end, as always, with the Road Trip Music Question.
