Pacific Coast Business Directory

Utah Territory Salt Lake City, Salt Lake County

Salt Lake City, Salt Lake County, PO, Incorporated, County seat, and capital of Utah Territory. This is the principal central point between the densely populated sections of the East and of the Pacific Coast. By railroad it is 1,068 miles from Omaha, and 916 from San Francisco, adding 36 miles to each as the distance from Ogden. The Utah Central Railroad connects with the transcontinental road at Ogden, and the Utah Southern stretches its iron arms seventy-five miles into the interior of the Territory, with several branches into the various mining districts of the Wasatch and Oquirrh ranges of mountains. The Utah Western Railway leads to the mining districts of Tooele, and is expected to extend through Sevier Valley and to Pioche in Nevada. The Utah Northern connecting with the Central at Ogden, opens the northern section of the Territory, thus perfecting the system that brings trade to the central mart. This peculiar city was first entered upon July 24, 1847, by a party of Mormons fleeing from oppression on account of their religion in a country where the right of religious belief is guaranteed to all by law; and who here, in the then barren wilderness, on a spot and in a section spurned by all, undertook to make themselves homes. Such an hegira, with its settlement and consequences, constitutes one of the grandest episodes of history. Salt Lake City is situated at the western base of a spur of the Wasatch Mountains, (See Nephi) and about twenty miles east of the southern extremity of the lake of the same name. It is laid out on the most generous scale, the streets being 132 feet wide, crossing each other at right angles and inclosing blocks of ten acres each, but several have since been cut up by cross streets. These were intended for small farms, and to irrigate them water was brought to the city from the Cottonwood River, which runs in canals through all the streets. The soil being fertile, aided by irrigation, and industry having been incited by a taste for beauty, rows of trees border the streets, and fruit trees fill the gardens, thus highly ornamenting the city, and embowering it in summer verdure. From the inhospitable desert of 1847, it has risen to be a beautiful city of 30,000 inhabitants, well built and flourishing, with an assessment roll of $7,200,964. The principal buildings are the City Hall, the Tabernacle, Theater, one of the best in America; Museum, the houses of Brigham Young, the First President of the Mormon Church, and the Temple, not completed. The City Hall was constructed at a cost of $70,000, and is used as the Capitol. The Tabernacle is a building of peculiar construction and great capacity, being of a single room capable of holding 10,000 persons. It is mostly a large roof, constructed with a view to acoustics, being a semi-ovoid, resting on forty-six pillars of red sandstone. Its dimensions are 250 feet in length by 150 in breadth. An organ is in course of construction in the building, said to be the largest in the United States. Numerous other public buildings are in the city, and schools, churches. Masonic and Odd Fellows' lodges, manufactories, and other institutions are maintained. The newspapers published here are the Deseret News, daily and weekly; the Salt Lake Tribune, daily and weekly; the Salt Lake Herald, daily and semi-weekly; the Real Estate and Mining Gazette, monthly; the Shandinave, weekly; the Woman's Expositor, semi-monthly; and a magazine, the Messenger, monthly.
