Included in admission
Built in Salt Lake City, Utah in 1863. Brigham Young never lived in this uniquely styled stucco farmhouse, but used it as a "show place" for visiting dignitaries and guests. He and his family held musical performances, square dances, and dinner parties in the home's second-story ballroom that was designed in the tradition of New England inns. The farm also served as an agricultural experiment station where crops such as alfalfa, sugar beets, mulberry seedlings, and silkworms could be tested for their viability in the unfamiliar Utah climate and soil. It was primarily a dairy farm.
