It's called a gate and a monument but it's more of an archway that spans the street. The monument was erected in 1859 and commemorates the entrance to Brigham Young's property. From here you can step right over to the Beehive House and Lion House...More

The Eagle Gate is a bit underwhelming, since it's simply suspended over the intersection and the only real viewing of it is from the sidewalk of a busy city street. However, it's right next to the Lion House, the former home of LDS church president,...More

This stunning ART piece is a true symbol of the beauty of Salt Lake City. It spans the main artery of traffic for the beautiful capitol city. State Street leads to the Capitol building, itself a wonderful sight to tour. South Temple street is the...More

You can see this from a good distance... it is located next to the Bee House. It hoovers over the roadway but the Eagle on top is beautiful!

It is more of a landmark and not an attraction if you are walking downtown. It is nice to see but would not go out of my way just to see it. If you are nearby, take a few seconds to see but do not...More

Aside from the fact you are standing on a street corner with traffic rushing by, the monument is impressive. Just nothing to write home about. The buildings around it dwarf it
