Fisher Mansion Open House

If you’ve never toured the Fisher Mansion at 1206 West 200 South, now’s your chance. Join Mayor Becker at the Fisher Mansion on Halloween (10/31/09) from 1:00-3:00 PM. Salt Lake City now owns the 106-year-old mansion built for Albert Fisher, president of the Fisher Brewing Company. The mansion and carriage house were recently added to the National Register of Historic Places, and their renovation will be the first¬†Salt Lake Solutions¬†project.

The building was one of few private residences designed by Richard Kletting, who designed the Utah State Capitol Building, Saltair, The Salt Palace, and many other historically significant buildings in Salt Lake. Fisher built the home for an estimated cost of $13,000 in an unusual location next to his brewing company on the banks of the Jordan River. It was occupied by the Fisher family until 1940 when the home was leased to the Catholic Church as a convent. In 1973, the Church turned the building into St. Mary’s Home for Men, a shelter for homeless men suffering from drug addiction. In 2006, the property was purchased by Salt Lake City in order to complete the last segment of the Jordan River Trail.

When: 10/31/2009 1:00 PM to 10/31/2009 3:00 PM
