Capitol Hill

Capitol Hill is an area steeped in history, culture and graced by magnificent, turn of the century homes and historic mansions. The Utah State Capitol, built between 1912 and 1916 rests grandly on the hill with sweeping views of downtown and the Wasatch Front as well as the Great Salt Lake to the West. Memory Grove Park, dedicated to the victims of WWI, lies just to the east.  Several historically significant buildings, including the Salt Lake Council Hall and Pioneer Memorial Building are sited here and, in 1982, the area was named to the National Register of Historic Places. Single family homes have changed hands from the low $300s to over $1,000,000 and there are condos, town and duplex homes scattered throughout, particularly down the southern slope of the hill.
