Beehive House [UT]

The Beehive House, built 1854, was the home of Brigham Young (1801-1877) during his years as President of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and as the Governor of the Utah Territory. The interior is furnished in period style. The name of the residence comes from the beehive which sits at the top of the home as a symbolic reminder of the importance of an industrious nature.

The house offers free 30-minute tours.
