The story of Old Desert village in Salt Lake City, Utah.

The Old Desert Village is a village of historic Mormon homes that is located in the Pioneer State Trail Park on 2601 Sunnyside Avenue, Salt Lake City, Utah.

The Brigham Young Forest Farm House was built in 1800’s and is the most popular place for haunts in the village. Spirits that haunt the home include Brigham Young who has been seen sitting in the front room with a cane in his hand.

During the time the Wilcox family was living in the home and restoring it to its original state, they were having a reception in the home, when a nice young man dressed in 1880 clothing talked with them. A photo was taken of the trio; however, the young man was not in the picture.

The home was moved from its original place to the State Park. After the move, more ghosts began to appear.

Ann Eliza Webb was Brigham Young’s 19th wife. She divorced Brigham and wrote a book entitled “Wife #19, The Story of a Life in Bondage.” She has been seen in various places throughout the home. Another helpful entity, which could be either Ann Eliza or Brigham’s second wife Sara Decker, has also been moving hangings on the wall as a way in which to help the guide.

Children and have been hard playing in the ballroom and in other rooms such as the parlor and upstairs.

Odors are also very prevalent in the home. Some have smelled the aroma of chicken soup or potatoes frying.

Other homes in the village that have spirits that do not wish to go onward include the Jewkes Draper Home and the Smith House.
