Fruit orchards imported and planted by early residents have given the area its unique name. The chaotic layout of the small trianngular area is distinguished by steep narrow streets. Although water was not easily accessible before 1880, this was a popular residential location because of its proximity to downtown, among other things.
Architectural styles vary from early simplistic styles to Carpenter Gothic to those in the late Victorian Era. Within a single block are almost as many styles as can be found in the entire Avenues Historic District.
Utah Heritage Foundation was excited to share this fabulous area.
