It's put on every year by the Utah Heritage Foundation in different historic neighborhoods around the valley.
This year they had eight homes along South Temple. South Temple is also known as "Millionaire's Row".
From their website...
"Along South Temple Street you will find the homes of Utah's most influential families, churches, clubhouses from Utah's earliest private clubs, and one of the city's first hospitals. They reflect the work of Utah's most prominent architects and a wide range of architectural styles. The wealth of Utah's mining boom transformed South Temple from a dusty thoroughfare into a stately street with remnants with a prominent address. In addition to mansions remnants of this once opulent past, Sandstone curbs, carriage steps and hitching posts, and lattice light poles make this one of Salt Lake City's greatest treasures."

The Holy Cross Chapel is part of the Salt Lake Regional Medical Center. The interior of the chapel is stunning. I felt like we were in a tv show or movie, it was so beautiful that it looked like every chapel you see in the movies.
The white marble and honey onyx in the chapel were amazing as well.

It reiterated to me how important good design, quality building materials and preservation are.
While looking online today I found this Historic South Temple Street Walking Tour. I hadn't ever heard of it, but I think it would be a great way to see and learn about the area!
