Boston and Newhouse Buildings

These twin buildings in downtown Salt Lake City really stand out to me.  They were Utah’s first skyscrapers and were built by one of the state’s wealthiest mining magnates, Samuel Newhouse.

They were part of the attempt to have a “Wall Street” in the western states with other buildings like the Newhouse Realty Building, the Commercial Club Building, the Salt Lake Stock & Mining Exchange and Hotel Plandome.
