Dressed to Sell Home Staging Tips

Cedar City Home Staging Tips

This is a great time of year to create an outdoor retreat. Shop second hand stores or garage sells. Spruce up your finds with fresh paint and new pillows. This year’s trend is silver or metallic grays. Outdoor fire pits are relatively inexpensive to purchase or construct. Add some lifestyle appeal, maybe give an office area a bright color wall finish to keep the thinking process going. Cabinetry painting can freshen the bath or kitchen. Look-up, are your lights out of style or date? Mismatches are ok and add interest to a room.

Cedar City is in Iron County which got its name after iron deposits were found throughout that part of the region. The Mormon leader Brigham Young sent volunteers to colonize the Iron Mission area.Cedar City also has a lot of what people call Cedar Trees ( which are actually Juniper Trees). After the iron factory was set up it was the first iron factory west of Missouri. Due to some problems that the small blast furnace had at the iron factory along with hostility between some of the settlers and Indians the factory was shut down 7 years later.

Mining continued after the factory had shut down and continued to play a role in the economy through WWII. A neighboring community had some of the biggest mines in the country and was called Minersville. While there is not much mining that takes place in Cedar City anymore, people will always look to Cedar City Utah as the first place out west to mine and process iron.

Travel and Leisure 20 great places for the 4th of July!

No. 20 Cedar City, UT

Near Zion National Park, Cedar City has the nickname Festival City, and with good reason: its Main Street parade on July 4th runs the risk of being overshadowed by the town’s Tony-award-winning Utah Shakespeare Festival, which runs from late June until October and features a replica of the Globe Theatre. Starting July 5th, you can also check out the Wildflower Festival at Cedar Breaks National Monument. Dine between festivals for Cedar City’s high-ranking burgers and barbecue; Rusty’s Ranch House gets raves for its filets paired with mountain views.
