The Lion House was the family home of Brigham Young, the first governor of Utah and second President of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. It was constructed in 1856 and gets its name from the large stone lion statue situated above the front entrance, which was sculpted by William F. Ward. The three-story building is in downtown Salt Lake City, Utah, and sits near the corner of State Street and South Temple.
  • The Lion House Courtyard: Tucked behind the Lion House and Beehive House, the Lion House Courtyard is a charming haven ideal for an elegant event.
