C   The cabins Brigham Young made for his wives
On Oct. 23 [1848], Eliza [R. Snow] recorded in her journal that she moved in with Johnathan and Elvira Holmes in the fort, staying until the following June. Clara Decker Young had gone to live with her mother, and the Pierces moved into their cabin. Then, June 28, 1849, Eliza moved into one of a row of log houses that Brigham Young had built for his wives near City Creek. The buildings were actually known as the “Log Row.”
