Reuben Broadbent (born December 23, 1817 in Kexby, Lincolnshire, England, died after 1894) was a pioneer architect in Utah. Raised Episcopalian, he learned carpentry from his father. After converting to Mormonism in 1849, he emigrated to America, living in St. Louis, Missouri for some time before settling in Farmington, Utah[1]

Among his works are the Farmington Rock Chapel and the Bowman-Chamberlain House.[1] which are listed on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places.
