The polygamist house has always fascinated me. It somehow has to hold multiple wives, a large number of children, and the husband that organizes them all. A few weeks ago, a friend and I spent a day in the polygamist community of Colorado City, Arizona taking pictures of houses. We had some pretty unreal experiences that I hope to write about another day, but in the meantime, here are my favorite houses we came across.
What you might not be able to notice from the pictures are the amount of houses that were either unfinished or just abandoned. These abandoned structures are scattered throughout the town. Were they left by the group who migrated to Eldarado, TX? Do these Mormons follow in a long tradition of leaving a newly built house to follow their current prophet? This was a truly bizarre experience from a truly bizarre city.
