Dedicated October 1986
by the Taylorsville-Bennion Chapter of the Sons of Utah Pioneers
This historic marker is located behind the chapel at 4845 South Woodhaven Drive in Taylorsville, Utah.
Built in 1892 as the Holy Trinity “English” Lutheran Church, the time I spend there (2010-ish) was when it was Ichiban Sushi and now (2020) it has sat abandoned for a while.
Located at 336 South 400 East in Salt Lake, 324 South is also on the parcel and is the parking lot ( in 2020).

The International Order of Odd Fellows was one of the many secret fraternal organizations popular in 19th-century America.
These organizations engaged in a variety of social and charitable activities. They also offered “fraternal insurance” programs to assist members and their families in case of an illness or death. The Odd Fellows Hall is a good example of Richardsonian Romanesque commercial architecture. A variety of brick patterns give the facade a textured look.
Look for the inscriptions “I.O.O.F.” and “1891” in the elevated center portion of the parapet. Also note the carving of the all-seeing eye, an Odd Fellows symbol, above the main entry.
1891, architect George F. Costerisan.
Located at 26 West Market Street in Salt Lake.
Utah Governor. Born in Hesse-Darmstadt, Germany, he came to the United States as a teenager in 1860 and settled in Utah in his mid-twenties. There he became involved in a variety of businesses, to include hotels, mining, railroads and an amusement resort. He first held public office as a member of the Salt Lake City Board of Education, (1898-03) and as a member of the Utah State Senate, (1902-12). In 1917, he was elected the forth Utah Governor, plus the first and to date the only person of Jewish heritage to be Governor of the State of Utah. While in office he helped establish a Jewish agricultural colony in Clarion, Utah, called for an audit that recovered a million dollars from various state agencies, created a Public Utilities Commission, a Workmen’s Compensation Act, a new State Industrial Commission, a Corrupt Practices Act and a Labor Organization Act. He declined to run for reelection in 1921 and returned to his business interests, until his death from a heart attack at age 80.
