The Lion House

The Lion House was built in 1856 by Brigham Young in Salt Lake City, Utah to accommodate his family of approximately 27 women and 56 children.

Truman O. Angell, Brigham Young's brother in law, who designed the Salt Lake City Temple was also involved in the design of this home, which got its name from the statue of a lion over the front entrance, made by William Ward.

The house is situated at 65 East South Temple, near the corner of South Temple and State Street just one block east of Temple Square.

Brigham Young died in the Lion House in 1877.
