Salt Lake City Stories and Tips

Brigham Young House, Estate and Cemetery

Eagle Gate Photo, Salt Lake City, Utah

The homes of Mormon Church president Brigham Young are the Beehive House and the Lion House (67 E south Temple). The two houses are next door to each other and housed the very large Young family. There are tours available for both houses. It was a very pleasant tour. The Lion House offers lunch and dinner but I have made it for either.

Eagle Gate, once served to mark the entrance to Brigham Young’s estate, had to be relocated to make for better traffic roads and flow. The Brigham Young Monument is just east of Temple Square. This large statue was erected in 1897.
