HISTORY

This home was built by Swen Truedson Sandberg in 1868. It was three adobes thick. Swen and his wife,
Pernilla lived in it most of their lives.

Then it passed to their daughter, Pernella, and son-in-law.

Then on to their son, Edward, and daughter-in-law.

In 1930, one layer of adobe was removed and Edward F. Nisson refinished it with rock. Ed was a farmer and
stone mason. He took stones from the Virgin River and turned the little house into somewhat of a show place,
carefully veneering the entire building.

Edward passed the house down to his son, Quentin, and daughter-in-law.

They passed it down to their daughter, Mareli, and son-in-law.

The home was extensively changed by Terrill & Mareli Clove).
