This marker is supposed to be at the old Pioneer Cabin across the street to the west from Temple Square, (see this post) but in searching it out I found out it was in storage at the DUP Museum across the street from the State Capitol.   I went there and got the pictures. 

The location when they get it placed back at the cabin will be: N 40 46.235′ W 111 53.682′

The location now, the Museum is at: N 40 46.591′ W 111 53.468′

 

The Marker reads: One of the oldest houses in Utah, built in September 1847, by Osmyn m. and William H. Deuel, located North of the east portal of the old fort, now Pioneer Park.  In 1849 Albert Carrington bought and moved it to 1st North and West Temple.  He presented it to his daughter Frances, when she married Zebulon Jacobs.  In 1912 they gave it to the Church.  It was moved to the museum in the Vermont Building and later to this site.  Albert Carrington was assistant to Capt. Stansbury during his U.S. Survey in 1849-50.  Part of Stansbury’s time was spent in this cabin.
