267 Second Avenue

This two-story Victorian Eclectic style house was build c. 1886 for Robert Patrick, Jr.  Born in Scotland in 1862, he came to Utah and became a well known buyer and manager at ZCMI.  In 1885 he married Caroline Thorn, a member of the Tabernacle Choir.  After Robert’s death in 1935, Caroline continued to live in the house which was converted into apartments to accommodate their daughters.  Restoration was begun in 1990.  The unusual massing, decorative brick work, and wood detailing contribute to the character of the historic district.
