Brigham Young Farmhouse – Things to do in Salt Lake City
A visit to the Brigham Young Farmhouse is one of the many fun things to do in Salt Lake City for tourists. Originally built in 1863 and later relocated to its current location at Old Deseret Village, this home was one of many that Brigham Young had throughout the Utah Territory. The stucco farmhouse was designed in the tradition of New England inns. Brigham Young never peronsally lived in the house. Primarily a dairy farm to make butter and other products for Brigham Young’s family, it also was used for growing sugar beets, alfalfa, and raising silk worms to develop the silk industry in Utah. The Brigham Young Farmhouse was a show place for visiting dignitaries and family musical performances, dances, and dinner parties were held here.
