Allen-Thurmond-Taylor-Paxman House

135 East 200 North

Built in 1893.  The home was later occupied by Nellie Taylor, wife of John W. Taylor. Apparently, during anti-polygamy raids Nellie hid her husband from U.S. Marshals in a cranny near the fireplace in the master bedroom. This home was on the cover of Better Homes and Gardens for winning the grand prize for tasteful and practical renovation in 1963. (Provo Historic Buildings Tour)
