George M. Brown House

284 East 100 North

Picture coming soon.

 

Built in 1884, the George M. Brown House is the best example of the wooden Carpenter's Gothic architectural style in Provo, and one of only several examples of the style in Utah.  The Brown house exhibits the verticality and decorative jigsaw work usually found in the Gothic Revival, but displays the horizontal siding, simulated quoins, and symmetry of the local building tradition.  George M. Brown ahad this house built for a polygamous wife in the early 1880s.  Brown was a prominent early Provo attorney.  He moved from Illinois to Utah with his parents in 1847 when they converted to Mormonism.
