Salt Lake City and County Building Tours

  • at: Salt Lake City and County Building
The Salt Lake City and County Building is one of Salt Lake City's most beloved landmarks. Completed in 1894, the building is Utah's finest example of Richardsonian Romanesque architecture. Its rich history includes the Utah State Constitutional Convention, the trial of Joe Hill, and an infamous pumpkin. In the late 1980s, it became the first building in the world to be retrofitted with base isolators. During an earthquake, the building will gently float on 440 steel and rubber “slinkies.” Preservation Utah's one-hour guided tour of the City and County Building begins with the base isolators beneath the building and ends in the clock tower high above.
