Historic Block 70

This plaque on the ground, south of the Salt Lake Tribune Building (Ezra Thompson Building) at 143 South Main Street in Salt Lake City, Utah shows a map of the original block 70 and who lived where on it.

“Now how would you feel, if you had spent five months in the mountains in the midst of trouble and danger and trials? How would you feel when you got first into sight of the promised land?”

“It was the promised land to them and they saw the peaks and the beautiful valley, the Salt Lake, that looked like a lake of silver, and they said, ‘What a beautiful scene is this!’ ”
– Hiram Clawson – an original settler of Block 70
