avenues

One of the oldest and most established neighborhoods in Salt Lake City, the Avenues boasts some of the most historic landmarks of Utah real estate. It’s home to the 100 year old Cathedral of the Madaleine, Kearns Mansion, and the Salt Lake City Cemetery which is the largest city-owned cemetery in the United States. The neighborhood attracts a diverse population and features many locally-owned shops and restaurants (i.e., Wild Grape Bistro, Hatch Family Chocolates, Sawadee Thai, and Cucina Deli). Finding your way through Salt Lake’s Avenues is simple. The streets letter A to U (west to east) with the avenues numbering 1st to 18th (south to north). There is a distinct difference in the architectural style between the Lower Avenues (1st to 11th) and Upper Avenues (11th to 18th). Homes in the Lower Avenues are primarily Victorian and Craftsman built from the late 1800s through the 1930s. Homes in the Upper Avenues were built from the 1940s through the 1970s, featuring some of the best examples of mid-century modern architecture in Utah.
