Please join Preservation Utah for a lively presentation by local historian Bim Oliver about the
early years of Federal Heights. Learn of the neighborhood’s often quirky history: How did a
place once occupied by brickyards, lime kilns, a soap factory—even slaughterhouses—become
one of Salt Lake’s most prestigious neighborhoods? Who wanted to construct “pretty little
pagodas” throughout the neighborhood? What sporting event was used to promote Federal
Heights? Why did a city council member call one of the developers a “d---d fool”?


Join us via Google Meet to hear the intriguing history of Federal Heights and to find out about
this year's historic homes tour planned for Federal Heights in May of 2023
.
