1067 East South Temple
Constructed in 1907, this two-story four-square type house with a hipped roof was designed by the firm of Walter E. Ware and Alberto O. Treganza, two of Utah’s best-known architects. Strongly influenced by the Prairie School style, for which the firm was best known, the design includes a centrally placed hipped dormer in the roof, wide overhanging easves with exposed rafters, and a large one-story front porch. Distinctive interior features include crown moldings, Craftsman bookcases with leaded glass, and a beamed dining room ceiling with recessed breakfront.
The home was first owned by Edward O.Howard, a banker and businessman. Born in Skaneateles, New York, in 1866, he moved to Utah at the age of twenty-four. In Salt Lake City, Howard was involved in many successful business ventures, including the Walker Brothers Bank, National Credit Corporation, Utah Light and Traction Company, and Utah-Idaho Sugar Company. Howard married Annie Payson in 1895. Annie is most noted as a founder of Salt Lake City’s Memory Grove, a memorial park for World War I veterans. The home was sold to Hyrum W. Pingree in 1920, who held the property until 1934. The property had had several subsequent owners.
