Built in 1907 it was the home of the first non-farmer in Provo Bench (later named Orem), William owned the local mercantile store.

The William and Lizzie Cullimore house, built ca.1907, is a one-story brick bungalow on a raised lime mortar and fieldstone foundation. As a mercantile owner, William Cullimore was one of only a handful of residents on the Provo Bench who did not raise fruit or produce for a living. This house, is a good example of a small Prairie School-style bungalow, quite common in the state, and throughout the country during the first two decades of the 20th century, represents a style that came slowly to the Provo Bench and seems appropriate for a business owner living in a newly prospering community.

I left a geocache and a munzee there to entice people to notice this piece of local history.
