Photograph of the grave of Brigham Young at Salt Lake City, Utah, [s.d.]. A metal fence with spear-like ends guards the face of the tomb. The tomb is a rectangular shaped cement(?) slab. Next to it is smaller slab, possibly the tombstone. A wall with a metal fence encloses the burial area. Trees and buildings are visible in the background.; "This unostentatious tomb of one of the most noted men of his time, is often remarked by tourists who expected to see a mausoleum more in keeping with the greatness of a man loved and revered by so large a community. The tomb is a stone box, covered with a granite block of great weight and is practically in accordance with his expressed wishes. It stands in a private cemetery not far from the Eagle Gate." -- unknown author.; "Young, Brigham. President of the Mormon Church, 1847-77. Was born at Whitingham, Vermont, in 1801. Having embraced the teachings of Joseph Smith, he began preaching at Kirtland, Ohio, in 1832. Following the death of Joseph Smith at Nauvoo, Illinois, 1844, Young assumed leadership. In 1845 he led a party westward from Nauvoo, reaching the central valley of Utah in 1847, where he founded Salt Lake City, and established the site of the new temple. In 1852 he proclaimed polygamy, which was finally officially prohibited in 1890. He established in 1868 Zion's cooperative mercantile institution. The growth and prosperity of the Mormon settlements in Utah under his direction attest to his remarkable administrative ability. Died 1877." -- unknown author.
