John Patten House
The John Patten House was constructed c.1854 of limestone. John Patten came to Utah in 1850 and settled in Manti. He was active in community affairs serving as a representative to the Utah Territorial Legislature, Sheriff of Sanpete County and a member of the City Council. The vernacular style house is an excellent example of early pioneer stone construction in Utah. The house was acquired May 23, 1976 with the assistance of a grant from the Utah Bicentennial Commission and the help of Dr. Ruth Graham, a descendant of John Patten.
