Daughters of Utah Pioneers

Erected 1964
Pioneer Home
Isaac Chase - Brigham Young

This home was erected 1853-1854 by Isaac Chase who
with his wife Phebe and their family came to Utah
in 1847. Originally it had eight rooms, including a
large kitchen with a built-in dutch oven. The
adobes were made on the Church Farm and the small
glass window panes were freighted across the plains.
Phares Wells, Sr. was chief carpenter. About 1859 the
Chase property, including the home and mill, was traded
to Brigham Young. Then members of the Young family
lived in the residence. The entire area was purchased
by Salt Lake City, April 28, 1881, and the adobe occupied
by park employees until 1984 when it was leased to The
Daughters of Utah Pioneers and restored by them.
