The William D. Alexander House is a historic house located at 91 West 200 South in Provo, Utah. It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It is asserted to be the only period example of Stick Style architecture in the state of Utah.

The William D. Alexander House was built in 1891 by William Denton Alexander. This home is perhaps the only example of Stick Style architecture in Utah. “The overall design of the house integrates Eastlake porch details and Queen Anne wall shingling on the upper story with the dominant ground level Stick Style to form a complete, cohesive, architectural composition… The visual complexity of the house is further accentuated by the mixing of hip and gable roof forms, the use of projecting wall dormers, and the presence of clipped corners on the house body and wing (National Park Service p. 1).” The William D. Alexander House was designated to the Provo Historic Landmark registry on March 7, 1996.
