Inscription.  This unusually large house with its ornamental detailing indicates the upper middle class status achieved by the John and Sarah Fairbanks family, after years of living in their covered wagon and log cabin. Located in Payson, Utah, the upper bedroom on the south side was called “Brigham Young's Room” because he used the Fairbanks home as a headquarters while on his way to visit southern communities.
