A block north on 400 West, back toward the Devereaux House, you’ll see the Union Pacific Railroad building at 400 West and South Temple. Built in 1909 when rail was the fastest and most elegant mode of travel, the building now houses some Union Pacific offices and an indoor concert venue, The Depot.
The lobby of the Union Pacific building, called the Grand Hall, is open to the public. It features beautiful murals depicting the Mormon pioneers and the driving of the “Golden Spike” that finished the first transcontinental railroad at Promontory Point, Utah in 1869. Occasionally the Grand Hall is closed for private functions.
