Brigham Young Home

Visit the home of Brigham Young, second president of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, leader of the Church's 1846 migration to the West, and first territorial governor (1851-58) of Utah.  As a great colonizer of the West, Young is recognized with a statue in the rotunda of the U.S. Capitol in Washington, DC.  

This 1840's restored home helps you understand how Young and his family lived and what was important to people living on the frontier at the time.  Wander upstairs and downstairs, see period furniture, and hear many stories about Brigham Young as a young father and leader in this bustling community.
