Lucy Loomis Tuttle, the third wife of Milo Andrus, directed the construction of this home while her husband was serving an LDS mission in England. The Andrus home served as an inn where Lucy, along with the rest of her family, provided food and lodging for travelers. It was known as a "Halfway House" because its location in Crescent, was midway between Traveler's Rest near 6400 South in Salt Lake City, and Porter Rockwell's rest stop about twelve miles south. Lucy operated the inn for seven years before moving the family to Spanish Fork and opening up another successful hotel.
