Fortunato Anselmo House

This house was constructed in 1903 by Silas B. Wood.  In 1920 Fortunato Anselmo purchased the house and lived here until 1950.  Born October 1, 1883, in Grimaldi, Italy, Fortunato Anselmo immigrated to the United States in the first decade of the twentieth century and arrived in Salt Lake City in 1911.  Later he established a wholesale import food business.  In 1915 he was appointed Italian Vice Consul for Utah and Wyoming and in this position served as both friend and official advisor to Italians as well as other immigrants in the intermountain West from 1915 until 1965.
