Utah Heritage Foundation held its 41st annual Historic Homes Tour on May 5, 2012, from 10 AM to 5 PM, along South Temple from 600 to 1200 East. We thank the tour sponsors, the home and building owners, housechairs, docents, volunteers, and everyone bought tickets and came to see eight wonderful buildings this year.
Along South Temple Street you will find the homes of Utah's most influential families, churches, clubhouses from Utah's earliest private clubs, and one of the city's first hospitals. They reflect the work of Utah's most prominent architects and a wide range of architectural styles. The wealth of Utah's mining boom transformed South Temple from a dusty thoroughfare into a stately street with remnants with a prominent address. In addition to mansions remnants of this once opulent past, Sandstone curbs, carriage steps and hitching posts, and lattice light poles make this one of Salt Lake City's greatest treasures.
