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.

Located in the South Temple Historic District in Salt Lake City, Utah.
