Frederick Walter Cox Home


Frederick Walter Cox arrived in Manti in the fall of 1852 with his three wives and 12 children. Their first home had only two rooms and was located in the Little Fort. They stayed there nine years. They started their “dream home” in 1854, but it took them seven years to complete it. The main floor was divided into four rooms, each with an outside entrance, giving each wife her own door. There are 12 rooms in all with 5 fireplaces and a large basement. It is still a private residence.
