Salt Lake City and County Building
Favorite SLC Landmark
451 South State Street
Salt Lake City 84111
Built between the years of 1891 and 1894, the structure offers the state's most exquisite sample of Richardsonian Romanesque architecture. Observant visitors will note the detailed depictions of Utah history carved above doorways in bas-relief and the faces of pioneer women sculpted atop the building's columns. Today, the building remains home to a mix of city and county offices, and the surrounding grounds are a perfect place to picnic. Guided tours are available on a limited basis. Call ahead to check the schedule.
