Carter Ferry - Kayaking Trails


The Carter-Terry-Call House on E. 800 S. in Orem, Utah is believed to have been built in 1899. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP) in 1998. According to its NRHP nomination, the house reflects the evolution of Orem during 1899 to 1941. The person of greatest significance associated with the house is Otis Terry, Jr., who was a religious leader and a civic leader. He was the "second Bishop of the Timpanogos Ward (parish) which then embodied almost the entire Provo Bench. The size and style of the house exemplify the importance of the bishop....". The house is believed to have been built by Richard Carter, who owned the property for about 10 years. It was then a home of Otis Terry, Jr., for his third wife. Terry actually had served part of a nine-month prison sentence during 1889-1890 for polygamy, relating to his having been married to two previous wives; but his first wife died in 1899 and it is believed that the second had left him, leaving him with 13 children to raise, before he married the third in 1900, and moved to Orem and purchased this house in 1901. Terry became bishop in 1903. The house was bought by Orvis J. Call in 1917.
