Field Guide--Polygamist-style houses outside Colorado City

This Colorado City house shows the field marks of a polygamist house: large & hotel like, sometimes several front doors, surrounded by a fence or wall or screening vegetation, and often a shabby or unfinished appearance.

A possible house built by a polygamist a long time ago in Escalante.  Equal sides and doors for equal wives?

Large, rambling, shabby house, well-screened, in a town near Zion.

Not necessarily polygamist.  Roses have special meaning for Mormons--they symbolize making the desert bloom.
