Built about 1881 by the Christoffersens, this one story adobe house was stuccoed and painted to imitate red brick as late as 1950. The roofing system is a heavy timber technique with axe-hewn rafters that is rarely found in Sanpete County. In 1919 Hans Peter Christoffersen inherited the home and sold it to his sister Margaret Sorensen. The stuccoed exterior no longer imitates brick.
