On this trip I'd like to explore the area's...

Eagle Gate

Official Entrance of the City

South State Street and East South Temple
Salt Lake City  84111
United States

Visitors to the area may be suprised when they find themselves driving under this great 76-foot arch with a 4,000 pound eagle on top. The eagle gate has rested on State Street and South Temple since it was built in 1859. Originally, it served as the entrance to Brigham Young's property and led beyond that to City Creek Canyon. Now it is merely a reminder of simpler times in Salt Lake and of course, the prosperity of the Mormon pioneers.
