This Victorian house was built c. 1875 by prominent building contractor William J. Tuddenham who later constructed the Hotel Utah. It was built for George W. Reed, one of the first business managers of the Deseret News and one of the earliest owners of the Salt Lake Tribune. Mr. Reed died in 1909 at his home after being hit by an automobile. The property passed to his children and remained in the family until 1982.

This home was built by the Mormon Church for my great great grandparents (the Reeds) and we still have the original deed, signed by Brigham Young. If possible I would love to contact the current owner. My mother would as well like to make contact as she is the only living descendant who knows the house as it was in its original state, plus many of the stories relating to the Reed and Tuddenham families.
