The Rasmus Jensen House in Ephraim is architecturally significant as an
example of Scandinavian folk building design in Utah. The house contributes historically to the thematic nomination, “The Scandinavian-American Pair-house in Utah.”
Rasmus Jensen was born in Denmark in 1842. Converting to the LDS Church, Jensen emigrated to Utah in 1863 and located in Ephraim. Jensen was a prosperous blacksmith and also engaged in farming, ranching, and freighting. The stone house was probably constructed in the early 1870s to be finished in time for Jensen’s wedding in 1876.
