Salt Lake Eagle Gate


An interesting arch was erected in 1859 to mark the entrance to President Brigham Young’s property. The original twenty-two-foot gate has undergone several remodeling projects over the years and now stands as a seventy-six-foot span. It serves as a reminder of Brigham Young’s strength, patriotism, and integrity.
