Visitors to the area may be suprised when they find themselves driving under this great 76-foot arch with a 4,000 pound eagle on top. The eagle gate has rested on State Street and South Temple since it was built in 1859. Originally, it served as the entrance to Brigham Young's property and led beyond that to City Creek Canyon. Now it is merely a reminder of simpler times in Salt Lake and of course, the prosperity of the Mormon pioneers.
Nothing fascinating about this structure. It was a plain arch, topped by an eagle, over the broad State St. Looking towards the north, you can see the Utah State Capitol through the arch. Unfortunately, at the time of my visit, the State Capitol was under renovation, with a towering crane next to it, so that spoils what would otherwise be a perfect picture.
