We went to see the City and County Building again when we were in Salt Lake City. City government offices are in the building. The historic and beautiful buildings were built between 1891 - 1894.

This building was redone while I lived in Salt Lake City. It takes up a whole block with lovely old trees and lots of grass. Inside are many things to see. If you like old buildings, you'll love this one.
