Congratulations to Chris and Jenny Munford! They were recognized by Preservation Utah and received the 2017 Heritage Award for their compatible addition.
K.E.E.P. Yalecrest partners with Preservation Utah and provides these plaques to Heritage Award Winners who reside in Yalecrest.
This is our 11th plaque awarded within the Yalecrest neighborhood. If your house has celebrated its centennial and you are interested in a commemorative plaque, let us know! We’ll have one crafted for you!
On April 6, 2017, Preservation Utah held their annual Heritage Awards Banquet.
K.E.E.P. Yalecrest occupied a table and honored residents Jenny and Chris Munford for their award winning compatible addition.
It was a remarkable evening highlighting great preservation work and people in Utah.
On April 22, 2017, the Yalecrest neighborhood was the site of the 46th Annual Historic Homes Tour. This popular area of Salt Lake City has been the location of four historic homes tours. Members of K.E.E.P. Yalecrest participated as volunteers, docents and staffed a K.E.E.P. Yalecrest table at Preservation Utah’s registration site. Congratulations and thanks to Judy Krall (K.E.E.P. board member) whose home was on the tour, was a previous Heritage Award Winner for her incredible addition and hosted a gathering after the tour ended. A great day for all!
Thank you to Preservation Utah for recognizing K.E.E.P. Yalecrest and our preservation efforts in the brochure narrative.
K.E.E.P. Yalecrest hosted its annual meeting on April 1st, and it was a fantastic event. No foolin’. Members and Board Members gathered at the house of Heidi and Scott Ingham. We shared food, drink and great comradery. KEEP’s accomplishments, goals and future endeavors were presented.
The Pritchetts won the raffle, books in hand!
An unexpected highlight of the evening was when Constance Crompton (center) revealed that her uncle, John Boyden Sr. built Scott and Heidi Ingham’s (our hosts) home in 1935/36. He and his wife Orpha, had four children (John, Steve, Carmen, Paul). They hatched chickens in the basement boiler room then kept them in the garage and used the south sunroom to start flowers from seed. John Boyden was twice a gubernatorial candidate. This house is currently described as a Colonial revival, however it was not built in this style originally. John undertook a major renovation (including the massive brick wall on the south side of the property) in the 1960s. Constance, a Yalecrest resident and member of KEEP Yalecrest, shared childhood stories and memories from the house.
Constances uncle was instrumental in representing the Native Americans. These tiles in the basement fireplace are remarkable! And a testament to his commitment to the tribes. Thank you to Scott and Heidi for opening your house for this event!
