Historic Homes--Henry Erlandson Home--Photo of the Day

     The Henry Erlandson home located on Utah Avenue and 300 East is another of the historic homes of PAYSON.  The plans for the home were drawn by the famous architect, Frank Lloyd Wright.  Mr. Erlandson and his brother Otto owned and operated Central Lumber Company that was located on Utah Avenue between Main Street and 100 East.  The home was built of the finest materials available.  It was reported that even the door frames were made of copper rather than wood.  The leaded glass windows were made in Italy and shipped to Payson to be installed in the home.
      The late Robert and Ardella Burdick purchased the home a number of years ago after a descendant of the Erlandsons passed away.  They did extensive remodeling to the building, grounds and the old garage.   They added onto the home but they retained and matched all materials to the original structure.  After the death of the Burdicks, the beautiful old home has been purchased by new owners.  Each owner of the home was maintained the appearance of the home and ground of the beautiful old home.
