As early as 1903 the DUP were interested in the gathering and display of relics. The artifacts which they had collected were displayed in various locations in Salt Lake City. In 1928 they started an official drive to raise money to build their own museum. Ground was finally broken for the Museum on March 25, 1946. After many complications and legal battles the Museum was finally dedicated in July of 1950. A* additional structure, a carriage house was completed in 1973 through a donation made by Saramarie Jensen Van Dyke.
