Historic Homes
Walking Tour

Please join us for the fourth annual K.E.E.P. Yalecrest Walking Tour highlighting local history and selected homes in the Yalecrest National Historic District, Salt Lake City.

Saturday, October 22nd

Start times from 11am – 1pm

Meet on the grassy island on Yalecrest Avenue and 1600 East

This year’s Yalecrest tour will concentrate on the unique architecture and early residents of the homes on the 1500-1700 East block of Yale and Yalecrest, including a few homes on Military Drive.

Journey on your own terms, with docents stationed along the streets providing information on the earliest residents, architects, and builders of these unique homes.   Hear the stories of some of the earliest residents including Minnie Viele Miller who lived at 1607 Yalecrest and donated the land for Miller Park and see the newly restored street lamp where the streets of Yale and Yalecrest converge.

This is a self-paced walking tour of exteriors only. It is roughly 3 blocks long, generally heading east up Yale and Yalecrest looping back around via Military Drive.  You will not need to remain with a guided group.

$5 suggested donation; free to members of K.E.E.P. Yalecrest. 
Join today or at the tour.

See you Saturday the 22nd!
