History of Salt Lake City

Salt Lake City was first founded in 1847 when a group of Mormons lead by Brigham Young first came across the valley. Salt Lake City derives its name from a large nearby lake. located to the west of the city. The city is constructed in 10 acre blocks, working out from its center, where the temple now stands. The blocks are numbered depending upon their relation to the temple (there are some exceptions to this), a street located 5 blocks to the east is called 500 east, a street located 3 blocks to the south is called 300 south etc. A sample address may look something like, 356 E 500 S, which means it is located 5 blocks south of the temple between 3 and 4 blocks east. This may take a while to get to grips with, but once mastered you will find it easy to find an address even if you have not been their before.
