The State Capitol, which Capitol Hill is now named after, was built from 1912 to 1916 in the prime spot to overlook the city. The hill slopes down to the south so that it handsomely overlooks the Salt Lake City downtown area. State Street, a road which runs through the whole state as highway 89, leads up Capitol Hill toward the Capitol which can be seen from miles away as the symbolic end of State Street.
Main Street also climbs Capitol Hill one block to the west. The entire Salt Lake City metro area is impressively seen from Capitol Hill, and the Great Salt Lake glistens miles to the west. If you own a home up here… everyone will want you to host the party!
