One of Salt Lake City's most beautiful landmarks, the Salt Lake City and County Building is Utah's most stunning example of Richardsonian Romanesque architecture. Built in 1894, the Salt Lake City and County building was the site of the Utah State Constitutional Convention and served as Utah's Capitol from when statehood was first granted in 1896 until the current Utah State Capitol was constructed in 1915. It underwent a seismic retrofit in the 1980s, making it the first building in the world to be retrofitted with base isolators; the weak sandstone structure was placed on a foundation of rubber and steel to protect it from earthquake damage.

The Dinwoodey Cabinet and Chair Shop was originally built in Salt Lake City in 1858 and replicated for This Is The Place Heritage Park in 1995. Mormon pioneers weren't able to bring much furniture with them across the Mormon Trail, so skilled woodworkers like Henry Dinwoodey were essential members of pioneer society. These craftsmen learned to adapt their work to the softer woods and different conditions found in Utah. Imitating the styles of the eastern hardwoods with the native white pine, aspen, cottonwood, and box elder timber, they used faux finish to paint and grain their products to look like hardwoods and marble.
