Beehive House (The)
Brigham Young, president of the Mormon Church and governor of the Utah territory, lived in this genteel home with his dozen children from 1854 until his death. Today, the house is restored with period furnishings and open to the public for tours. Named after the beehive, the state symbol signifying thrift and industry, the house stands in vivid contrast to the 300-square-foot cabin once occupied by the "prosperous" Deuel family and now displayed just two blocks west near the Museum of Church History and Art . Guided tours begin every ten minutes and are free.
