Dr. Priddy Meeks was the first doctor of Southern Utah. His medical practices were Thomsonian Medicine (an herbal medicine practice). He lived in Parowan, UT with his family for 10 years (1851-1861) where his cabin was his office and still exists today. In 1988, the landmark was made and named after him. The Parowan Library holds his diary and other information today of his life and Herbal Medicine practices in Southern Utah.
Visitors to the Priddy Meeks Cabin and Pioneer Farmstead can tour the original cabin with historic furniture, as well as some of the original household items and photographs. The wood was molded together instead of nailed, using a technique that created a surface the feels as solid as brick. The Pioneer farmstead also includes some of the original farm buildings with antique garden tools, as well as a garden that has been maintained to match the appearance of the garden from that time period, complete with some of the herbs and roots Dr Meeks would have used.
