It sits atop a wide street and dares you to drive or walk through it, it’s super cool in a creepy way. I love the dramatic pose it takes.

Straddling a major intersection on S. Temple is this fascinating structure. While this is not the original, it is a replica and stands true to its original form. A plaque at the base of the gate gives an excellent historical background. Best way to see...More

Strange to find a gate within downtowns this gate is fairly impressive by the size of the pillars. The black eagle gives a feeling of power. The sculpture of the eagle is extremely well done

In case you'd never seen Eagle Gate before - like me - I think it will have the biggest 'Wow'-effect when walking on South State Street towards North State Street (heading towards the State Capitol). What I did was actually go and stand on the...More

Not the original “gate”, but a replacement built in 1960s. It is supposed to mark the gate of the original estate of Brigham Young.

I wasn’t sure what it was all about but it is dramatic and worthy of a look. Just go east from the Temple area.

Interestingly enough, the Eagle Gate has been there since the time Brigham Young lived. It was actually part of the gate entrance to his estate that included the Beehive house. Now I am not sure it has been moved or anything, but it is a...More

I found the gate to be kind of cool but wasn't really blown away buy the gate itself. It certainly can't be missed and it's an easy sight to view when checking out the downtown SLC area.

We enjoyed seeing Eagle Gate. Its a statue that goes across the intersection of State Street and South Temple. It marks the entrance to Brigham Young's property at the mouth of City Creek Canyon in Salt Lake City. My favorite view is towards the Utah...More
