The architectural history of the buildings on this ABSTRACT The object of this thesis is to document the architectural development of Block Eighty-eight, Plat A, Salt Lake City Survey during the time of Brigham Young's presidency of the LDS church in Utah, 1847-1877. The history of the block is introduced by discussing the architectural trends of the period and city plans that had been developed by the Mormons. The architectural history of the buildings on this block demonstrates the concepts of Mormon theocracy, plural marriage and communal living, beliefs no longer practiced by the LDS Church. Each significant building is discussed in light of these early practices and examined as to concept, dates, materials, architects, builders, function, demise or preservation. Most of the information in this thesis is from photographs, newspaper articles, documents in the LDS Church Archives and the Utah State Historical Society. Although outside of the scope of this thesis, the complex changes to the block after the Brigham Young era are significant and are enumerated in accompanying appendices.
