Spotlight on historic sites: Deuel log cabin

One of only two surviving log cabins built in 1847 in the Salt Lake Valley is on display at the plaza between the Museum of Church History and Art and the Family History Library, at about 50 S. West Temple in Salt Lake City.

The 15-by-20-foot cabin, which was originally built a few blocks away in Pioneer Park and had been moved five times, has been fully restored. The cabin was home to two couples and two children in Centerville, Utah: Osmyn and Mary Deuel, and William and Eliza Deuel and their daughters, Minerva and Mercy Ann.

The restored cabin was opened with a ribbon cutting ceremony Nov. 19, 1985.
