The Beehive House was built in 1854 and served as the official residence of Brigham Young when he was President of the LDS Church and Governor of the Utah Territory from 1854-1877. The home has now been restored and furnished to reflect living conditions of that period. Visitors can step back in time during a free 30 minute tour of the house.
The Beehive House offers various beautifully decorated rooms including the play room, the kitchen, the family store, the fairy castle, Brigham Young's room/office, and the sitting room where family members would get together to sing and play various musical instruments. A wooden beehive sits atop the house as a symbol of industry, thus the name of the house.
The Beehive House is located at the corner of State Street and South Temple, just east of Temple Square. Open daily from 9:30am to 8:30pm. The last tour begins at 8:15pm.
