Historic homes in Salt Lake on view May 17 and 18

A dozen elegant, turn-of-the-century structures in Salt Lake City open for inspection May 17 and 18, when the Utah Heritage Foundation sponsors its 15th annual house tour. This is the foundation's major fund-raising event, which helps purchase and restore historic buildings. Only three buildings are now businesses; the rest are still residences. All have interesting architectural features and beautifully preserved or refurbished interiors.

In the Queen Anne Grant-Walker home, you can see refinished woodwork, marble floors, and reproduction period lighting. The George Stiehl home, in colonial revival style, had unusual leaded glass in its bay windows, ornate woodwork, and fine hardwood floors. The Fortunato-Anselmo home and the Walter C. Lyne house are now bed-and-breakfast inns.

Docents can answer questions and talk about the colorful original residents.

Houses are open from 10 to 5 both days; you can visit them in any order. Tickets cost $8 ($1 and $2 less for advance purchase and members, respectively). For tickets and a map, write to Utah Heritage Foundation, 355 Quince St., Salt Lake City 84103.
