Touring Salt Lake City's historic Marmalade district.
A good place to begin this six-block walk is the 1884 carpenter Gothic house at 355 Quince Street, now the office of the Utah Heritage Foundation; hours are 8:30 to 4:30 weekdays. You can pick up a walking tour brochure here ($2). For some highlights, head south to 325 Quince Street to see the 1870s one-story brick house featuring a bay window surrounded by decorative woodwork.
Go left on West 300 North Street to the stuccoed adobe at 80 West 300 North Street. This 1860s house is an example of the popular "I-form" house plan, though with additions. Turn left on Almond Street to 322 and a charming 1873 cottage; then go left on Apricot Avenue and right on Quince to more Victorians. At 168 W. 500 North Street is the 1890 onion-domed 19th Ward meeting house, now an amateur playhouse. To return, head back down Quince.
Groups of 10 or more can arrange for a guide (fee is $3 per person). Call (801) 533-0858 seven working days ahead.
