Temple Square and Church Headquarters

Historic Lion House

Built in 1856 by Brigham Young, the home derives its name from the stone lion statue resting over the front entrance. "Lion of the Lord" was also a nickname of Brigham Young, who served as President of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints from 1847 until his death in 1877. The home now houses The Lion House Pantry Restaurant. Back to Temple Square
