Salt Lake City Things to Do: 218 reviews and 374 photos
A large commercial area at the southeast end of town is Sugarhouse. This area was built around an old sugar mill back in the 1800's.
The state prison was also built here at the edge of town. (In a sad footnote to history Joe Hill a member of the "Wobblies" was convicted of murder and executed at the prison). When Sugarhouse became a suburban shopping area in the '50's that kept on growing the prison was relocated.
With easy access off of I-80 Sugarhouse is chock full of older homes, nice neighborhoods, shopping, libraries, restaurants and a hidden little natural area, "Hidden Hollow".
The area that the term "Sugarhouse" encompasses has expanded in recent years. But it definitely includes the sprawling Sugarhouse Park.
