Located in the Capitol Hill/Marmalade District, the John Alford house (1868) is close to downtown, art and culture, restaurants, mountains, and is an ideal spot for any traveler / outdoor enthusiast. Only a five minute walk to Temple Square, a one minute walk to the Utah State Capitol building, and very close to the Salt Palace Convention Center, Vivint Smart Home Arena, Salt Lake International Airport, and a number of different ski resorts and hiking trails.
Built in 1868 and completely remodeled in the late 20th century, this home is older than the Salt Lake Capitol Building or the Salt Lake Temple! The home was originally built by John Alford, a British native, convert to Mormonism, and polygamist who migrated to Utah in 1865. This historic neighborhood is home to some of the most iconic and unique homes in Utah.
