I have lived in Salt Lake City for many years. Finally I took time to take the tour. I am glad that I did today. I am glad they renovated the building after the fire.

Loved this mansion. Excellent guide. Very interesting history and beautiful house. Well worth the time. Check dates and times before you go though. A little off the beaten path so you want to plan well.
