This home was built in 1906 by John R. Twelves. John R. Twelves was a central figure in Utah’s history, being involved in the Grand Central Mining Company and serving as Utah County’s treasurer and recorder. The John R. Twelves House was designated to the Provo City Historic Landmarks Registry on April 26, 1996.

Since 2005 the Twelves House was the home of independent filmmaker Richard Dutcher’s Main Street Movie Company, a motion picture production and distribution company. I remember there was a 9 foot marble sculpture of Jesus, which dominated the front lawn, it was a prop which plays prominently in Dutcher’s film FALLING.
