The Salt Lake City center is about the area of Wells Fargo Center and the area of Salt Lake Public Library Main Building.

Visiting Salt Lake City is a visual lesson in history. The city's history goes back as far as the year 1 to 1300 AD when the Pueblo, aka Anasazi, made their home in southern Utah. The Navajo Indians and Ute Tribe followed. The city itself was founded in 1847 by Brigham Young and Mormon pioneers. Within days of the pioneers' arrival, plans were drawn and the area was named Great Salt Lake City.

In 1848, the region was officially ceded from Mexico to become part of the United States. The area was rich in ore and mining and drew many emigrants to the new city along with the Transcontinental railroad. Over time, the Mormon temple and State Capitol were constructed and electric trolleys became the mode of transportation, followed by buses in the 1930s. A prestigious moment in the city's modern history was its success in hosting the 2002 winter Olympic games. Today, the city is a thriving hub for software firms, high technology, and the hotel industry. More from this guide...
