"Today, penitentiaries are among the significant historic sites associated with the international movement known as sites of conscience. This movement aims to connect past to present by fostering thoughtful civic discussion about the thorny social topics associated with historic places. . . While the stories may be difficult to approach in interpretation, promoting healing and reconciliation go far beyond the events or architecture alone. . . As they are places that have deep meaning and connection, sites of conscience are among the spots that that represent the future of historic preservation in the United States and Utah."
