Thomas Morgan Log House

The first house Thomas Morgan built in Leamington, Utah


The first dwelling Thomas Morgan built on his homestead in Leamington, Utah was a dugout. Then he added this one room log cabin on top of the dugout so that the cabin had a cellar. The cabin was located on the North side of the Morgan ditch (The irrigation ditch Thomas Morgan brought to his homestead) and the adobe house he built later was located directly across the irrigation ditch on the South side. Thomas and Ann Watkins Morgan lived in this log cabin during their years on the Morgan homestead in Leamington.


This is a picture of the Thomas Morgan log cabin as it looks today. The Daughters of Utah Pioneers moved it from the original Morgan homestead to the Leamington town center where it now stands near the Leamington church. They also did considerable restoration work on the cabin, adding a new roof to protect it, new cement chinking between the logs, a new door, and new end boards. There is a fence around it and a sign at the front identifying it as Thomas Morgan's cabin.


This is not a cabin lived in by our Morgan ancestors. The original Morgan cabin, shown in the picture at the top of the page, has been much changed in the process of preserving it. A new roof was added and modern cement chinking added between the logs. The cabin in this lower picture is probably much more like the original cabin looked. The roof was made of poles, willows and sod. The logs were chinked with adobe mud. Rocks were used as a foundation.
