Joseph Lee Robinson Home in Farmington

Joseph Lee Robinson Home in Farmington

I visited Farmington, Ut during the Thanksgiving holiday and met with the woman who runs the Farmington Historical Museum. She was able to point me to the location of Joseph Lee Robinson and Oliver Lee Robinson’s home.

Here is a Google Street Map view of the neighborhood. You can actually drive up and down the street and see the different homes.

    wow, that is so cool. It never occurred to me that his houses would still be there.

    I finished reading his history. very interesting how he kept going back to his same obsessions, and how he said how wonderful other speakers were, but never told what they said.

    I was amazed by his visions. I can’t even imagine.

    Good work, Dave

    Isn’t it amazing that you can now just virtually drive down the street and look at their houses?

    JLR was an amazing man, that’s for sure.

    I am a great great grandaughter of Joseph Lee Robinson, and I had a great experience traveling the Farmington roads and seeing the homes that are left standing. The rock church that he helped to build was the same one that my son and daughter-in-law had their wedding reception in. Thanks so much for the pictures. What a treat! I have one of the Wilcox home, his daughter’s that you may be interested in. Also, a picture of Lorinda Robinson’s home where she raised the first silk worms in Utah. If you don’t have them, I will be glad to share.

    I am the current owner of one of JLR homes on 94 N 100 W. My wife and I would love to find a historic picture of our home. Any family members with one?

    I am a neighbor to the Gregson home that is shown. It is the rock home shown in the last 3 pictures above. In fact, my rock home was built as a barn to their home when Joseph Lee’s son, Oliver Lee, lived in their home. It’s a great neighborhood. There are 3 other Robinson homes on or near our street.
