Saltair Pavillion, Salt Lake City, Utah

The first Saltair, completed in 1893, was jointly owned by a corporation associated with The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and the Salt Lake & Los Angeles Railway, which was constructed for the express purpose of serving the resort. 

Saltair Pavillion

Saltair was not the first resort built on the shores of the Great Salt Lake, but was the most successful ever built. 

It was designed by well-known Utah architect Richard K.A. Kletting and rested on over 2,000 posts and pilings, many of which remain and still are visible over 110 years later. The beautiful structure burned down in 1925.
