Historic Thatcher-Young Mansion Dedicated

LOGAN, UTAH -- A Logan mansion that once housed LDS Apostle Brigham Young Jr. was dedicated on Tuesday, July 24th by President L. Tom Perry of the LDS Church's First Presidency. The mansion was restored during the past two years and will serve as the headquarters for the Alliance for the Varied Arts, which will hang art work in gallery rooms. The building also has classrooms, an attic outfitted for a children's story time place and an apartment for visiting dignitaries. The revival of the home is due to Logan resident Newel Daines, who wrote a letter to the LDS Church's First Presidency seeking their assistance with the home. In addition to the LDS Church, the George and Dolores Dore Eccles Foundation and the Emma Eccles Jones Foundation provided assistance to make the renovation possible. Brigham Young Jr. lived in the mansion for three years while he supervised Brigham Young College, which is now Logan High School.
