I learned a lot about utah through this trolley tour. It was a beautiful mansion though not the fist in utah. I had to get off the trolley to take a picture of it.

An excellent example of what a Governor's Mansion should look like. Very well kept up, and has all the right trapments of a regal old mansion.

I have lived in Salt Lake City for many years. Finally I took time to take the tour. I am glad that I did today. I am glad they renovated the building after the fire.

Loved this mansion. Excellent guide. Very interesting history and beautiful house. Well worth the time. Check dates and times before you go though. A little off the beaten path so you want to plan well.
