Samuel Nephi & Sarah Sixsmith Skinner House
(106 West 1200 South)
The Samuel Nephi & Sarah Sixsmith Skinner house consists of the Vernacular Classical style brick hall parlor house and a series of additions to the north and west. Samuel N. Skinner patented the one hundred sixty acre quarter section of land in 1882 from the U.S. Government presumably containing the house that he built earlier. Samuel and Sarah were among the early settlers in Orem, moving to the Provo Bench in 1877-8 when this house was built. Classical styling is found in
Utah houses from early pioneer times to 1890.
* As of May 2013, this is just an empty field, I’m unsure when it was demolished.
