This is the home of H. Tracy Hall, the physical chemist who invented the first reproducible process for making diamonds in the laboratory while working at General Electric way back in the fifties. Dr. Hall's invention made GE an incalcuable fortune. His reward? ...a $10. savings bond. Needless to say, Dr, Hall was disheartened by the lack of credit he received and landed himself a professorship at Brigham Young University in Provo, where he taught chemistry and conducted high pressure research. But there's much more to this story than diamonds. You can learn more about Tracy and his family when you visit this 'GEM' of a home!

I'm the youngest Daughter of the World-renowned Chemist Dr. H. Tracy Hall and his sweetheart, Ida Rose Langford Hall. My Husband Doug and I were both born & raised in Provo, and were High School Sweethearts. We have 4 children, 3 daughters and a son with multi disabilities, and are proud grandparents of 4 darling grandchildren (and another on the way!). Doug & I manage the H. Tracy Hall Legacy Home, which is where I grew up. We enjoy meeting new people & making friends from all walks of life, and would love to have a chance to meet you.

Here's a little information about the home: This home was designed & built in 1954 by my parents, H. Tracy & Ida Rose Hall. They wanted to live close to Brigham Young University (BYU) where my Father was a member of the Department of Chemistry, Physics & Biochemistry and where he spent 26 years teaching as a professor and researching in the field of high pressure and high temperatures. You can read my Father's biography when you visit the home, or you can read it online by visiting https://documents.htracyhall.org/featured-content.php. (you'll need to copy and past the link in your browser search bar).
Along the way they raised all 7 of their children, including me. When Mom & Dad passed away, my Brother Davvid bought the family home, the neighbor's home above it, and the neighbor's home below it. He removed the upper and lower homes, and replaced them with lawns, gardens, trees, play areas, an orchid greenhouse, pavilion & splash pad. The H Tracy Hall Home was restored to it's original beauty, and still contains some of the original furnishings. Now this unique historical home is yours to visit and enjoy! Don't waste any more of your time searching, call us now.
