Historic home of a Mormon leader
The Beehive House was built between 1853 and 1855, to accommodate Brigham Young, his wives and children. Young was a polygamist, leader of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the Mormons).
The Beehive House has been restored in 1960, and opened as a public museum, with free tours daily. The museum boasts original period furnishings that depict the Young family’s life in the mid-19th century. The house takes its name from the Beehive sculpture atop the house, designed by the architect of the Salt Lake Temple, Truman O. Angell.
