The Ester Maybe Sessions Home

Perrigrine Sessions was born in 1814 in Newry, Maine. After havin joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints he set out in 1837 on a journey that would take him throuh the drama of early Church history and across the continent. He became the founder of Bountiful, first known as Sessions Settlement, and the progenitor of a vast family. His first home in the winter of 1847 was a dugout with a roof of cotton-wood branches and sod, later he built homes of log and adobe. This brickhome for his eighth wife Ester and their ten children was built in 1890 just three years prior to his death. Perrigrine's son, Col. Alvin Sessions, remodeled the home for his family in 1938 into the beautiful, dignified structure it is today.
