Utah Historic Site

Constructed 1855-1856 as a residence for Brigham Young and his family, the Lion House takes its name from the recumbent lion carved by William Ward set on top of the front portico. The house was designed by Truman O. Angell and built of stuccoed adobe. Brigham Young, second president of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and first Territorian Governor of Utah, died in the house on August 29, 1877. Since its construction the Lion House has functioned as a community social center.
