City And County Building

One of the most interesting and attractive sites in downtown Salt Lake, this Romanesque sandstone structure served as Utah's capitol building for nearly 20 years at the turn of the last century while Utah courted statehood. The municipal seat is open to the public and houses portraits of the city's forefathers, as well as gifts from delegates from the various countries that participated in the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City. The surrounding Washington Square with its statuary and abundant flora is a perfect spot for a sunny picnic lunch.
