Day Dairy Barn

The Day Dairy Farm was originally part of a large homestead that was divided among the descendants of pioneer settler Henry Eastman Day. 

In the spring of 1850, Henry Eastman Day crossed the plains, arriving in Salt Lake City on July 2, 1850, and in Draper later that fall. Once the snow melted off the mountains the next spring, Henry was able to access the timbers needed to build a new home. He established a home and farm on 120 acres of land, helped build the community, and was baptized into the Latter-day Saint faith. Henry married Leah Rawlins on January 2, 1852. Their home, one of the first adobe homes built in Draper, still stands near 300 East.
