Salt Lake City in Salt Lake County, Utah — The American Mountains (Southwest)
Nelson Wheeler Whipple House
A central-passage type house, the Nelson Wheeler Whipple House has careful, classically-inspired details in the roof cornice and frieze, window hoods, and the main door with sidelights. It is one of the oldest surviving residences in the Salt Lake Valley. Since its construction was carefully documented by Whipple, it is especially valuable as a "textbook" of early Utah building practices. Marker placed in 1993
