Nestled away from the bustling activity of downtown Salt Lake City, Memorial House combines old-world charm with modern-day elegance.
Originally used as a stable and equipment storage shed in the early twentieth century, Memorial House was transformed in 1926 when prominent architects completely redesigned the building. With nearly a century of experience, and alongside renewed efforts to restore and preserve the house and grounds, Memorial House continues to build on their celebrated history of hosting weddings, receptions, and luncheons.
