The Brigham Young Complex is the collective name given in the U.S. National Historic Landmark program to a set of two houses in Salt Lake City, Utah. These houses were the residence of Brigham Young from 1852 until his death in 1877. As President of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints at the time of the Mormon settlement of the Salt Lake Valley, Young and his home were pivotal in the development of the Church, Utah, and the American west. The houses were designated as a National Historic Landmark in 1964.[3]

The two houses that comprise the Brigham Young Complex are:

  • The Beehive House
  • The Lion House
