James Loveless Adobe Home
The money raised at the benefit will go towards the cost of relocating and renovating the James Loveless adobe home.
The James Loveless adobe home is Provo’s oldest home, built in 1853 by Bishop James Loveless. The home was planned to be demolished but prominent historian Robert Carter realized what the house was.
Because the house has been stuccoed and modernized inside and out, few were aware that underneath the improvements to the home, there was actually the original handmade adobe mud brick structure making up the oldest surviving home in Provo.
Now, instead of being demolished, the house will be preserved in Provo’s Pioneer Village. Relocating the house is a complicated process because the adobe bricks are incredibly fragile. The home is being dismantled brick by brick and will be rebuilt in the village.
