Touring the Lion House in Salt Lake City

Exterior of Lion House in Salt Lake City

The Lion House is one of Salt Lake City's most famous and enduring landmarks. A truly elegant mansion, the Lion House is decorated with countless antique pieces from a bygone era. Built in 1856 by Brigham Young, the home derives its name from the stone statue of the reclining lion over the front entrance. Once home to Young and his family, today the Lion House is open for tours.

Young ultimately fathered 57 children by more than two dozen wives, and also had many adopted, foster, and stepchildren. Can you imagine that many kids running around this space at any given time? During the tour, I was told that Young often had to ask others the names of the kids, since he could not remember all their names.

I have a similar looking settee in my home. It also has a painting of lovers and a green velvet seat. Here is the entire room.
