old pioneer cabin was one of the first to be built in Tooele. It
was built on Main Street in 1855 by Zachariah Edwards. Two Gowans
families, Andrew and Ann, and Hugh and Betsy, completed the home
in 1856 and lived there together for a few months. It later served
as homes for other families and businesses in Tooele. It was moved
to its present location beside the Old Pioneer City Hall in 1975.
