McCune Mansion Tour

April 12, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am


Alfred and Elizabeth McCune stopped keeping track of expenses after the costs for their “simple” bungalow on Capitol Hill reached $500,000.

They imported roof tiles from Holland, rare white satin-grained mahogany from South America, and a room-sized mirror from Germany. The ceiling murals and decorative borders alone took an artist from New York two years to finish. Completed in 1901 and restored in 2001, the McCune Mansion remains a Utah showplace. Spend an hour touring the mansion from the first floor’s octagonal reception room to the third floor’s glittering ballroom. The Venetian marble bathroom alone is worth the tour!
