HISTORY

When James Andrus decided to move his families to St. George from his ranch in Canaan in 1886, he acquired this lot that was originally owned by Mr. James Houston. He built this house for his wife Manomas. He also built a house for his other wife, Laura, at 196 West 100 South.

This house was a 1.5 story adobe home. It is representative of the Greek Revival Period, characterized by the columns and dentil moldings.

After being in foreclosure, the home was purchased by the City of St. George on March 5, 2013 for $240,000.
