From Wikipedia:

Brigham Young Complex

The Brigham Young Complex is a collection of buildings historically associated with early Mormon leader Brigham Young (1801-1877) on East South Temple in the center of Salt Lake City, Utah. The complex, the surviving part of a once-larger compound belonging to Young, includes the Beehive House, Young's family residence, the Lion House, his official residence as church leader and governor of the Utah Territory, and two small office buildings he used for official business. The complex is a National Historic Landmark District for its association with Young, whose leadership included the rapid expansion of Mormon settlement across the American West. The buildings are now owned by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church); the Beehive House is open for tours, and the Lion House is operated as an event venue.
