Smith died at the age of 93 on June 16, 1924.
The Lauritz Smith House in Draper, was built in c.1865. It includes Colonial Revival and Saltbox architecture.
It is architecturally important because it represents a rare example of the New England Saltbox house in Utah. Saltbox architecture is relatively common in the U.S. northeast where Mormonism began, but is rare in Utah. .
According to the NRHP nomination, The true saltbox house in New England is characterized by a massive central chimney as well as the shed-like outshut extending out to the rear from the two-story front section. As the type moved into the Midwest and then to Utah it gradually lost the central fireplace in favor of a central-hall and two gable-end chimneys.
