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.
