Inscription. This house, built about 1858, is a significant example of one of the traditional building designs found in early Utah vernacular architecture. Three of Manti's most prominent families lived here. Orville Southerland Cox, the builder, was a leading Mormon colonizer. Jezreel Shoemaker who took over the house in 1861, was three times mayor of Manti. In 1879 Edward Parry, a stone mason from Wales, moved into the house to supervise the masonry work on the Manti Temple.
