Built in Fountain Green, Utah in the mid-1860's. English immigrant Samuel Jewkes operated a sawmill and a gristmill in Fountain Green, Utah. His middle class home was built using heavy pine timbers connected with mortise-and-tenon joints and wooden pegs. He insulated the interior walls by laying adobe bricks between the rough timbers and applying lime plaster and whitewash directly to the exposed adobe surfaces. The exterior was clapboard. In 1879, Jewkes sold the home to Henry Draper.
