Brigham Young House

Brigham Young House


Nauvoo, Illinois (IL), US
Brigham Young, second president of the LDS Church, was born in Whitingham, Vermont. When the Youngs came to Nauvoo, they settled across the river in Montrose, Iowa. Brigham departed on a mission to England, and while he was gone, his wife, Mary Ann, procured a building lot in Nauvoo and moved her family into an unfinished log cabin. After Brigham returned, he completed the cabin and then built this home on the same lot. The Youngs lived here with their six children until they left for the west.
