This was the home of John and Mary Lucinda McDonald who crossed the plains and were among the early settlers of the Heber Valley.  John built the home in 1874 and was known as a man of faith, a pioneer, and Indian fighter and peacemaker, a Martin Handcart rescuer, a cattleman rancher, a builder, a patriarch and a father.  For his great contributions to the valley, his community and family, we dedicate this building to John McDonald (1833-1910) and his family.

Thank you to Maryann Hunwick for letting me know that this is labeled wrong on the historic plaque on the building and it is actually the John Lee home instead of the John McDonald home.
