Brigham Street

A new documentary has been airing on our local PBS station KUED, channel 7, that highlights the history of South Temple street. It is entitled “Brigham Street.” Some of the images used in the film are from the Salt Lake County Archives.

A brief description of the film in the producer’s (Issac Goeckeritz) words:

“Brigham Street, or South Temple as it is known today, is a street unlike any in the American West. It’s been called “Salt Lake City’s Grand Boulevard” and has been the residence of governors, senators, mining magnates and religious leaders. From 1880 to the 1930’s the vast majority of Utah’s wealth resided here in the most opulent neighborhood the region had ever seen. The documentary shares stories of the street’s historic residents and the amazing homes and architecture they left behind.”

If you didn’t see it on Tuesday, it will air again tonight, Thursday, May 16, or you can watch it online at:
