Gardner Village Celebrates 30 Years

Published: 03/30/2010

Gardner Village, a historic retail shopping area Salt Lake's West Jordan, is celebrating its 30th year of business in May 2010.

Gardner Village's legacy began more than 125 years ago when Archibald Gardner, a Utah Pioneer from Scotland, built a flour mill at the request of Mormon leader Brigham Young. Gardner was among the first settlers of the Salt Lake Valley in 1847.

In 1979, Nancy Long bought the old flour mill and surrounding property in hopes of renovating it and turning it into a home. Instead, she followed her entrepreneurial spirit and turned it into what it is today: Country Furniture & Gifts and Archibald's Restaurant--the focal point of Gardner Village. In the subsequent years, Long acquired old homes and buildings, moved them to the property and opened retail specialty shops. The Village has evolved into a destination for locals and for tourists. It currently includes 21 retail shops, a meeting facility, a restaurant, bakery and day spa. The old flour mill is on the National Register of Historic Places.

Long's daughter Angie Seeley of Sandy and son Joe Long of Sandy are now the co-owners of the Village and are proud to be a part of what their mother started 30 years ago.

"It's a great achievement to be in business after 30 years and still be independently owned and operated," Seeley said. "Because we're locally owned, we offer a unique setting and exclusive products that can't be found in national chains or big box stores."

Gardner Village invites all to participate in celebrating its 30th year of business throughout May. Activities will be held throughout the month and can be found at
Gardner Village is located at 1100 West 7800 South in West Jordan.
