Follow Up: The Spry House

Thanks to a comment on our last post regarding the attempted bombing of the house of Governor William Spry in 1916, we were able to track down some images of the house from the Tax Appraisal Cards and Photographs collection.  The photo below, taken in 1936, is of the house in its original location at 368 1st Street.

Thanks to Nelson Knight of Utah State Historic Preservation for the info regarding the move of this house!

    Very interesting! When I see an old house I never assume that it might not be in it’s original location.
