Sometimes referred to as Old Salt Lake City Hall, this visitor center holds local history exhibits within today.

Visit the first-floor mayors office and second floor Rose Room courtroom during your visit.
You will also learn about the 1700 pound bell sitting atop the building, as well as the architectural features such as red sandstone, capturing the 'beauty of the Old West'. The building was designed by the same architect as the tabernacle on Temple Square!
