421 N. Center Street

This one-story, central-block-with-projecting-bays type house, built in 1900, was designed in the Victorian-eclectic style commonly found in pattern books of the era.

The house was built for Alexander E. Carr who was an abstractor of title for 57 years.  He was the head of the Carr Abstracting Company and vice-president of Intermountain Title Guaranty Company, the first business of its kind in Utah.  He was also secretary of several state boards and the Salt Lake City Board of Education.

Located in the Capitol Hill Historic District.

The house next door to the south has a small plaque that says “Built 1903 – Alexander Edwards”
