In the dining room there were a few things that were authentic. The dishes on the table in the dining room with the "BY" monogram had been ordered and but didn't arrive until after Brigham's death. The ruby colored vase on the top shelf of the dining room cabinet was an original artifact and was used in the home by Brigham and his family. The photos on both sides of the dining room cabinet were also originals that were in Brigham Young's home.
In the kitchen the kids were able to pick up and see just how heavy the iron was. Emma was grateful that we didn't have to iron our clothes with something quite that heavy. Upstairs in the bedrooms we learned what a chamber pot was. The kids were again grateful that they didn't have to have a bathroom duty like that.
All the beds upstairs belonged to Brigham Young as well as the dresser with the numbers on it that he used as his traveling wardrobe. The cane and the hat on the bed also belonged to Brigham Young.
