Garden Hotel – Boston Hotel – Squatter’s Pub
147 West 300 South in Salt Lake City, Utah
Joseph Baumgarter built the Garden Hotel in 1909. Ware & Treganza, one of Salt Lake City’s most successful architectural firms, designed this simple commercial building.
While best known for its Craftsman and Prairie style works, the firm also designed a number of the less stylized commercial and industrial buildings in Salt Lake City’s warehouse district. A variety of hotels operated in the building until 1979. After standing vacant for much of the 1980s, the building was purchased by the Salt Lake Brewing Company in 1988. The brewing company renovated the building and opened Squatter’s Pub Brewery here in 1989.
