Warren Jeffs Home

Trent Nelson | The Salt Lake Tribune
A sign reads, “Zion”, over the door of a home intended for the family of Warren Jeffs in Hildale, Friday April 26, 2013. The property was purchased by Willie Jessop who spent the day allowing former followers to see the inside of a compound they had previously not been allowed to enter.

A series of doors and hallways lead to what Willie Jessop refers to as Warren Jeffs’ “rape room” (above) inside a home built for the polygamous leader and hidden behind multiple high walls in Hildale, Friday April 26, 2013.
