    A nice place to explore while in Salina is Miss Mary's Museum. The museum is housed in the old Crosby Memorial Presbyterian Church and School which was built in 1884. The church was a memorial to Helen Rutgers Crosby and was one of several Presbyterian Churches built in the Sanpete and Sevier Valleys under the direction of Reverend Duncan McMillan who served as the Presbyterian Mission Superintendent in Utah for 42 years from 1875 to 1917. Today the building houses a number of displays and artifacts about early life in Sanpete and Sevier Counties.

    Salina is a town of about 2400 located in Central Utah at the intersection of Interstate 70, US Highway 89 and US Highway 50. Salina was named for the plentiful salt deposits in the area and was established in 1864 as an LDS settlement. Settlers had to abandon the town from 1866 to 1871 after disputes with the local Indian Tribe. After their return, they discovered a vast deposit of coal in nearby Sevier Canyon. Salina was the site of a German P.O.W. Camp during World War 2 and the infamous “Salina Massacre” of 23 P.O.W.s occurred here. Today Salina is a sleepy, but friendly, little town. I liked it!

    This is a small town family restaurant where the emphasis is not on fancy decor but on good food and friendly service. The waitresses call all the regulars by name and the visitors are "sweetie" or "honey". Definitely worth a stop if you are driving through tjis area!

    Favorite Dish: Try the Chicken Fried Steak, just don't tell your heart doctor you ate it!

    This place is anything but fancy. I've lived in Salina for 30+ years and Mom's Cafe still looks the same! Waitresses wear uniforms and are very friendly.

    Mom's Cafe was featured/included in National Geographic a few years back.

    Favorite Dish: Love the homemade chicken dumpling soup, but I think it's only served on Thursdays.
