Photographer Trent Nelson recently visited Rulon Jeffs' old compound at the mouth of Little Cottonwood Canyon and found rust and high grass.
Everything looks like it could use a scrubbing or new coat of paint.
The FLDS also operated the Alta Academy school on the site. Old photos show some of the compound and school in the heydays.
Jeffs and his son, the school's headmaster, Warren Jeffs, closed Alta Academy in 1998 and sold the property. Rulon Jeffs died in 2002.
Judging from property records, the current owners haven't done much with it. The Salt Lake County assessor website shows while the land value has held steady, the value of the buildings has declined precipitously. In all, the 2013 market value of the property is $674,600, according to the assessor website.
