View of Mt. Olympus from the center of the Salt Lake Valley in the 1920s.
Salt Lake Modern is hosting a tour of privately-owned residences from the mid-century period in the Olympus Cove neighborhood in Salt Lake County. Development above Wasatch Drive started in the early 1950s as new construction technology allowed expansion up the east bench and the city’s growth demanded additional space for development.

All persons who walk must have a ticket. We do not mail the tickets prior to the event, and all advance and day-of ticket purchasers must pick up their tour brochure(s) at our tour headquarters before going on the tour. The tour is an all-weather, rain-or-shine event and there are no refunds for unused tickets.
Tour attendees will be provided shoe covers to be worn inside all homes; attendees may also visit the homes in socks, but not barefoot. All homes are private residences and are only available to tour during the time and day of our tour. We will not reveal the names of the building owners. Nor will we reveal the addresses of homes prior to the tour. Photography is permitted only outside the homes and is prohibited inside. The tour will take approximately two hours to visit all buildings. Walking between all houses should only be undertaken by those willing and able to navigate steep terrain. Attendees are not required to visit all the buildings, and may go to each one at their leisure during open hours.
Salt Lake Modern does not guarantee that the buildings on this tour are ADA accessible. All dogs, including service dogs, are not allowed on the tour. It is strongly recommended that those that require ADA access be prepared for difficult circumstances including not being able to access certain areas of each building.
