{slc} temple square’s beehive

June 16, 2016

The Beehive is an important symbol for the Mormons as well as the entire state of Utah. In the Book of Mormon, the jaredites carried “with them Deseret, which, by interpretation, is a honey bee” (Ether 2:3). Taken from that verse, honey bees are a communal group that works together. They value industry, harmony, order and frugality, which matches values of this particular religious sect.

That’s why it’s perfect that the former home of Brigham Young when he was President of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and governor of the Utah Territory is called the The Beehive House. Located in Temple Square and built between 1853 and 1855, this home is now a sort of museum that lets visitors peek into the life of the Brigham Young. It includes time-appropriate furniture and extras that let you see how far this group of pioneers came because when they arrived in this valley, it was just a desert!
