Adjacent to Washington Square/Pioneer Campgrounds is this most attractive government building constructed in Romanesque style, dates back to the late 1800’s. It is open to the public during regular business hours. Take a look around the ornate interior. Both the building and adjacent square are...More

The building is wide and tall, with stone walls. It looks like a castle that has been built to last centuries. The building is surrounded by garden that gives even a more majestic effect

They don't build them like this anymore.....very impressive structure. And, word is that it was built to be just taller than the buildings in the Temple Square area of the Mormon Church.

Amusing to read that at it’s completion in the 1890s this structure was massively over budget at a cost of $900,000. I don’t know if this level of detail could even be built today for $900 million.

beautiful exterior to drive by. just older offices inside so unless you have work there, just offices. It is nice on the inside, but there are better things to do with short time in SLC.

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.

If your a fan of Richardson Romanesque architecture (think Boston) this is your building. In fact, it is really the only building in town in this style which in itself makes it remarkable. In a city with a dearth of great and notable architecture, this...More
