This one and one half story adobe house was originally stuccoed and scored to resemble cut stone, including simulated quoins. The house was built for Justesen’s first wife, Sarah A Shepherd, who raised nine children here. Justesen, mayor from 1898-99, took a second wife, Annie Larsen who had a house elsewhere in Spring City. Rasmus also homesteaded in Emery County. Artist Susan Gallacher purchased and restored the house in 2002.
