James E. Snyder House

James E. Snyder House

Located at 984 E. Center St, this is one of many historic homes in Provo, Utah.

Snyder, who was a prominent building contractor and served as a Provo City Commissioner in 1932–1935, constructed this house in 1906. Except for a brief period in 1923, the property has remained in the Snyder family ownership. The house is an architecturally significant example of the Victorian Box Style, featuring a large, wrap around porch with monumental pillars.

Mount Nebo

Mount Nebo is the southernmost and highest mountain in the Wasatch Range of Utah. Named after the biblical Mount Nebo overlooking Israel, which is said to be the place of Moses’ death, it is the centerpiece of the Mount Nebo Wilderness, inside the Uinta National Forest.

Spiral Jetty

Spiral Jetty is an earthwork sculpture constructed in April 1970 that is considered to be the most important work of American sculptor Robert Smithson. Smithson documented the construction of the sculpture in a 32-minute color film also titled Spiral Jetty.

Built on the northeastern shore of the Great Salt Lake near Rozel Point in Utah entirely of mud, salt crystals, and basalt rocks, Spiral Jetty forms a 1,500-foot-long , 15-foot-wide counterclockwise coil jutting from the shore of the lake.

In 1999, the artwork was donated to Dia Art Foundation. Since its initial construction, those interested in its fate have dealt with questions of proposed changes in land use in the area surrounding the sculpture.
