Tropic Town Pioneer Museum


The founding of Tropic came about as a direct result of two water projects, Spring Creek and East Fork. It was through the hard work and perseverance of Andrew J Hansen, William Lewman and Ole Ahlstrom that the vision of supplying water to the valley was fulfilled. With hammer, shovels, drills, powder and fuse, forty men completed the 10 mile canal.
