Parowan is located along Interstate 15 just south of Paragonah and about 20 miles north of Cedar City. It's nestled at the interchange of Highway 143 and Gap Road in the interstate. It was the first incorporated city in Iron County dating back to 1851. The initial hub was a fort constructed on the east side of Center Creek as a development of ironworks in the region. It served as the agricultural support base for local iron industry but eventually, the ironworks were decommissioned. It grew slowly but significant growth occurred in the 1990s typically attributed to the affordability utility fees and economic climates. It's the site of the annual Iron County Fair on Labor Day weekend and hosts the Utah Summer Games and is a sponsor of the annual "Christmas in the Country" celebration each November.
