Capitol Reef National Park: Fruita Barn By Derek Anderson, Joel Anderson, 2020
- Capitol Reef National Park: Fruita Barn
Early settlers planted the orchards as a cash crop and for subsistence in the area that has been made famous by Capitol Reef National Park, Utah. No more than ten families ever lived in Fruita at any one time, and the last residents moved away in 1969. Today, the orchards are preserved and protected as part of the Fruita Rural Historic Landscape listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The orchards contain approximately 3,100 trees including cherry, apricot, peach, pear, apple, plum, mulberry, almond, and walnut. This lovely farm is a must-see when visiting Capitol Reef! Rendered by the award-winning artists of Anderson Design Group in the style of early 20th-Century travel posters, this classic design will look great as a framed print, canvas, metal sign, canvas banner, as a postcard or a notecard.
