Linton Mansard

Hyrum, Utah
  • Hyrum, Utah
  • This is second empire mansard style home with a lot of history. The home was built by a Scandinavian Mormon pioneer in 1888 named Ola Liljenquist, who was the first mayor and bishop of the city. The home is built on a hill overlooking the beautiful Cache Valley in Northern Utah. The architectural style of the home was unique for the time and location. The exterior walls are built from adobe bricks that were made from clay from nearby streams and rivers. The wood floors are from the douglas fir trees that were logged from the nearby Blacksmith Fork Canyon. As we continue to update this home we try to stay true to the history of the home by exposing the original materials while introducing a modern touch. All the art in the home is created by myself.
