Beautifully lit up in the setting sun
Nov 2019
The McCune Mansion is a classical and rather beautiful big red stone house on a prominent corner location on Capitol Hill in Salt Lake City. You can run into it when you are walking from the Temple Square to the Capitol. It looks particularly gorgeous in the setting sun. According to the sign on site, it was built in 1901 by the railroad and mining tycoon Alfred McCune and later in 1920 donated to the Church of Latter Day Saints. Now it is an event centre available to use for events. Not generally open to the public.

Beautiful turn of century turrets and hard wood throughout was a pleasure to celebrate weddings and engagements there over looking the Grand Avenues of Salt Lake City

This is simply a stunning mansion! It's set up on a hill from Temple Square but it is a short work, though steep.

Your experience depends on your group / guide

Very easy to book a spot online - 2nd Tuesday of the month on the hour. Magnificent home / architecture. I understand that the guides are volunteers but I wish she had done her research - she read from a stack of papers and struggled to remember facts about the McCunes (which I easily found w Google) and she spent too much time telling us about her own relatives. We also had some chatty members in our tour group which really slowed us down - I realize it’s probably tough to keep a group moving but a guide should be able to walk and talk and “know” the home she’s showing. She let the long-winded tourists go on and on with their personal stories while she shuffled through her “script” - sadly I had to break away and didn’t get to complete the tour since I only had an hour to take the tour. I would’ve loved to have been able to simply explore the beautiful space on my own. I’m sure with a different guide / different group my experience would have been excellent. A beautiful home and worth a visit.

Beautiful Old

Way back in the early 70s I attended BYU Salt Lake and it was held in the McCune Mansion. What a treat. Classes were held in everything from the study with real leather on the walls to the library, dining room, grand ballroom and even in one of the bedrooms. The woodwork is truly exquisite. I have returned a few times since then for a party or wedding and it hasn't changed. Well worth a visit if you can get a tour. Brings back sooo many memories. I said I visited this year in April as they had not other options when it has been a few years.

If you like the historical side of Utah this place is one of the best. Well laid out and quietly interesting.

Magnificent Mansion
Jun 2016 • Friends
Hard to believe this mansion was set to be demolished! Our group of 30 enjoyed a private tour of this amazing mansion. The history is incredible. It is only open to private tours, business events, weddings. It has been lovingly restored to its original grandeur. There are many stairs but an elevator is available for those needing it. Every room is amazing with treasures from around the world. The details cannot be described nor can they be captured in a photo.

McCune Mansion Tour
Dec 2015 • Family
I've always wanted to see inside the mansion because my grandfather took music classes there. At Christmas time, my family flew to Salt Lake and stayed at the Inn On The Hill. While we were there, one of the inn keepers set up a tour for me, last minute. Sean gave me an individual tour! It was amazing inside and he generously let me take all the pictures I wanted. It was a fantastic opportunity and an amazing tour. Thank you Sean and the staff at The Inn On The Hill
