George Taylor, Jr., House
This historic home was built in 1885 by George Taylor, Jr. Taylor's father, Taylor, Sr., arrived in Provo with his family as part of the migration of Mormon handcart pioneers in 1863. The Taylor family established the Taylor Furniture Store, the city's first furniture store, in 1886. The home changed owners numerous times over the years and was recently restored by Habitat for Humanity.
