The Beehive House
, located just east of Temple Square
, served as Brigham Young's house during the years he was President of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and governor of the Utah Territory. Once inside the house, children can easily envision the life of a child in the 19th century, viewing the bedrooms and toys used by Brigham Young's dozens of children. The home school, eating areas, playroom, family store, and fairy castle that his large family used are furnished with restored artifacts from that period. The free tours
begin every 10 minutes and run about 30 minutes. Appointments are recommended for groups of 10 or more.
