Devereaux Mansion – Things to do in Salt Lake City
One of the fun things to do in Salt Lake City is to the visit beautiful, historic mansions of South Temple, a veritable “millionaire’s row” of a hundred years ago. The Devereaux House was Salt Lake City’s earliest mansion and the most elegant home in its time period. It was the setting of many social gatherings for prominent locals and important visitors from around the world. Originally built in 1855, just 8 years after the first arrival of the Mormon pioneers in the Salt Lake Valley. The coming of the railroad later turned its neighborhood into a commercial and industrial area, driving off its occupants to live a few miles up the road.
