Do you have information on the parents of Cora Judd or any other information on her?

I’m trying to find out what the sign says when entering the little Main Street area. There is no information on it anywhere.

There are a couple signs near the entrance to that area. One of them is a plaque on a stone which reads:

“Horace A. Sorenson and his wife Ethel Melville Sorenson founded Pioneer Village in 1938. From that time their lives were dedicated, with selfless devotion, personal generosity, imagination and foresight, to their dream of a Pioneer Village as a “living museum.” These two people have made the history of Utah and her people a visual reality for present and future generations.”

If that’s not the one you’re thinking of, let me know and I’ll find out more.
