Historic home tour Flake and the other families were among the nu-merous individuals sent by the Church Prophet, Brigham Young, to carve religious colonies in the southwest. In September, Flake was returning to Utah to pur-chase supplies for winter when he met Mormon Church Apostle Erastus Snow along the wagon trail. Snow was dedicating new Mormon colonies. The two men named the burgeoning new community after themselves. Today, Snowflake offers something for everyone. Cele-brations include a Ground Hog Day Breakfast, Pioneer Day Celebration, Harvest Festival, and the 12 Days of Christ-mas. Snowflake boasts a 27-hole golf course with frequent tournaments. The town’s performing arts association pres-ents throughout the year including little theatre, commu-nity choir, cultural arts and a concert series by The White Mountain Symphony Orchestra. Northland Pioneer Col-lege has located its new performing arts center in Snowflake. The beautiful Snowflake LDS Temple was only the 108th temple to be built in the world. Visitors may choose to research their genealogy at the Snowflake Family History Center. But the pride of Snowflake is its historic homes, 45 of which are listed on the National Historic Reg-ister. Five of the homes are established as museums with guided tours available.
