Discover the History of Your Salt Lake Home

Do you know who designed your home? Who had it built? What the original cost was? The folks at the Utah State Historical Society’s Office of Preservation may already have your home’s history documented. They have files on hundreds of building throughout the state, including those listed on the State and National registers. The Office of Preservation is located in the old Rio Grande depot at 300 S Rio Grande St. (450 W). Stop by, or give them a call at 801-533-3500 and they’ll let you know what type of information they have on your property. If your home has not yet been documented they have several resources available for digging up more information such as Sanborn Maps, building permit registers, tax files, and architects files. More information on researching your property is available¬†here.
