Birthplace of University of Utah is replicated

The year after the pioneers entered the Salt Lake Valley, President Brigham Young asked stalwart Latter-day Saint John Pack to build a home large enough to be used for social functions. Eventually, that 30-foot-by-60-foot structure would accommodate the first classes of the University of Deseret, forerunner to the University of Utah. Now the home has been replicated at This Is The Place Heritage Park in Salt Lake City.
