Joseph B. & Louisa Person Clark House

The Joseph B. and Louisa Pearson Clark house is a one-and-a-half story brick masonry Victorian eclectic-style, cross-wing type house built ca. 1903 and with several later additions to the rear. It was covered in stucco in the 1950s yet keeps some of its Victorian eclectic styling elements such as the raking cornice with cornice returns, a frieze board, and a transom over the large fixed pane window. In 1898 Joseph’s parents deeded twenty-eight acres to him. Joseph most likely built the house in 1903. Joseph had many different occupations during his life. He hauled rock for the building of the Salt Lake City LDS Temple; he farmed and raised stock on the Provo Bench, and later raised thoroughbred racing and saddle horses. Together with his father and brothers he owned one of the “rst general merchandise stores in Orem. He erected a dance hall that was later used as the high school gymnasium. The Clarks sold the property in 1906.
