Deuel Pioneer Log Home
For an immersive historic experience in Salt Lake City take your group to the Deuel Pioneer Log Home, one of the very first permanent structures in the city!
Sitting on West Temple Street, across from Temple Square, this historic home was one of the first permanent settlements built by pioneers in this area. It was built in July 1847 by Osmyn M. and William Henry Deuel, these men among the first to arrive in Salt Lake City from Nauvoo territory. The home was lived in by the Deuel family for just under 2 years. The structure was originally located in what is now Pioneer Park, a part of what was then the 'Old Fort'.
When you visit this home today you will see a fully restored and authentically furnished log cabin, with pioneer artifacts inside such as the home's original cast iron stove. The home gives 'excellent insight into the lifestyle of the Mormon pioneers' and others who settled the once-elusive American West.
