NileGuide Expert tip:
The City and County building grounds host an array of summer festivals such as the Salt Lake City Arts Festival, International Jazz Festival, and Utah Pride Festival.
- 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.
