The City County Building is one of the most notable structures in the Salt Lake Valley. It was completed in 1894, and was used as the state Capitol Building until the completion of the current Capitol in 1916.

It is a sandstone structure. Considering the high earthquake danger of the valley, engineers renovated the structure in the 1980s, placing the entire structure on 440 base isolators. So, while the valley shakes in the next quake, the City County building will stand strong.

The large park surrounding the City County building is often used festivals and fairs.

Across State Street is the new Scott Matheson Courthouse, to the east is the new Library complex.
