The Haunted Old Deseret (Heritage) Park (Now called "This is the Place Heritage Park")
The buildings were part of the original colony established by Brigham Young, who led Mormons west after their leader, Joseph Smith, was murdered by an Illinois mob in 1844. The building was moved to it's current location. The house was taken over by his 19th wife, Ann Eliza Webb. Before Brigham Young's Forest Farmhouse was moved to the historical park, his ghost haunted his residence for fifteen years. After Ann Eliza divorced Young, she toured the country denouncing him and the Mormon Church.
Visitors and guides at this historical settlement have reported dozens of ghostly encounters in recent years. Mrs. Eliza's petite apparition, dressed in black, is still seen peering out of the dining room window of the house. Mary Fielding Smith's apparition has been observed many times standing in the doorway of Smith House. Sometimes Mrs. Smith is seen wagging her finger angrily, perhaps because her house was set facing the wrong way when it was moved to the park. At nearby Jewkes-Draper Home, the ghostly sounds of children at a party are heard.
