This cool looking home in Leland, Utah was part of the movie “Made Men” and is also mentioned on several websites that list haunted sites, there are some stories of murders that may have happened in there.(this is inaccurate)

William Parry Bowen and Ruth Jones were children when their parents came to Utah in 1856 with the John Hunt Wagon Train. They married and lived in this home. Their eldest daughter, Mary Eleanor Bowen married Lars Peter Larsen and their family lived in the home.

The county records show ownership being back and forth with Larsen’s and Moran’s since 1980. I’ve been seeing if I can dig up any good history about the place, it looks like it would have a lot.

“The home was built by William Perry Bowen and his wife Ruth Jones Bowen. They later traded homes with their daughter Mary Eleanor and her husband Lars Peter Larsen because they had a very large family and the Bowen’s children were grown.” – Rex Larsen

I saw Eric Meyer share this photo on facebook saying that his Great Great Grand Father William Perry Bowen built this house in the 1850’s or so. It had been known as The Big House.
