I’ve been told that Salt Lake City homebuilders held the nation’s first parade of homes in 1946, and since, it is a Utah tradition that attracts more people each year.
A battle for preservation is an expression I hear, but I have learned first hand how often there are winners and losers in the efforts to save buildings.
