The Canute Peterson House is a historic residence in Ephraim, Utah, United States. Built in 1869 by Canute Peterson, an early Latter-day Saint leader in Sanpete County, it was designed by architect William H. Folsom. In 1978, it was listed on the National Register of Historic Places.[2]

Richard Nibley, brother of Mormon scholar Hugh Nibley, purchased and restored the home in the 1960s. For a time it was a bed and breakfast.[3][4] However, in 2014, Cache Valley Bank (directly south) purchased and incorporated the old home into the newly constructed bank building.[5] It is restored and open to the public for tours Monday-Friday 8:30 am – 5:00 pm.[citation needed]
