The Judge Building

This is a quick addition to the series on former Salt Lake County Attorney Harold Wallace. He had a private office in the Judge Building so we thought we’d share a picture of it. The building itself was constructed in 1907 and was named after Mary H. Judge, a local businesswoman. The architect was David C. Dart.

    The Judge Building is famous for another couple of reasons. It’s the place (on the 6th floor) where Steven Christensen was killed by a pipe bomb left for him by Mormon Document forger Mark Hoffman in 1985. (See my book: Salamander: The Story of the Mormon Forgery Murders, written with Linda Sillatoe.) The cafe on the east side of the Main floor on 300 S. is where the Stockton/Malone and Sloan Jazz team used to have breakfast. Allen Roberts, Architect/Historian
