Hannah Maria Libby Smith House

315 East Center Street

[photo to be added]

Built in 1878.  In the 1850's President Smith, later counselor to Brigham Young, was sent to Provo to oversee colonization for the Mormon Church.  Originally he lived on 500 West, with his second and sixth wives, Hannah and Lucy.  Later, Lucy returned to Salt Lake, but Hannah moved across town to this home.  When Smith died, only the foundation had been completed.  Hannah raised her children here.  President George Albert Smith of the LDS Chuch, a grandson, enjoyed this home as a boy.  This house is significant because of its remarkable original condition and is an example of simple architecture styles of early Utah.  It is one of teh best preserved vernacular residences in Provo.
