This house was located at 1547 Yale Avenue, in what is now known as Yalecrest, a neighborhood listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Salt Lake County Tax Appraisal Cards show that the house was built in 1924, and was recorded as “lot 5, block 1 of Upper Yale Park.”  On November 3, 1937, the assessor was unable to gain access to the house due to an illness in the household, so the interior details may not be complete (they did note that there was a large amusement room in the basement).  Over the years, additions and porches were added to the original house.

The size of this historic house was about 2,000 square feet.  It was torn down and another house (containing over 6,000 square feet) was built in its place in 2010.

    Once they are gone, they will not come back. Neither good or bad, just a fact.
