Wearing turn of the 19th Century clothing, 7 members of the Echoes From the Canyon living history production are posing in front of an adobe wall. A large wooden wagon wheel is in the center of the photo.

Living History Weekend Event

Behind Grand Canyon's stunning landscape are stories of people who lived off the land, explored, mined, and exploited it, raised a family and business, and fought to protect it for future generations.

Join us on the South Rim to travel back in time during Grand Canyon's annual living history event, "Echoes from the Canyon". Meet the important people who made Grand Canyon what it is today.
