The Boston and Newhouse Buildings at Sunset

The Boston and Newhouse Buildings are located on Main Street between 300 and 400 South Streets.

These structures are considered Utah's first skyscrapers and were financed by one of the state's wealthiest mining magnates, Samuel Newhouse.

Their presence represented the historical polarization between the north-end (Mormon) and south-end (non-Mormon) businesses that formed separate commercial districts within downtown Salt Lake City.
