Salt Lake City Presents: The House That the Women Built
THE HISTORIC LADIES’ LITERARY CLUB BUILDING IN SALT LAKE CITY HAS BEEN SELECTED FOR A NATIONAL COMPETITION BETWEEN 20 CITIES TO RECEIVE CRITICAL FUNDING FOR HISTORIC PRESERVATION.
VOTE FOR CLUBHOUSE DAILY
Sept 24-Oct 29, 2019
ACCESSIBILITY IS OUR RESPONSIBILITY!
Grant funding will be used to restore the century-old sinking front porch and stairs with the addition of an ADA wheelchair ramp and service lift making the Clubhouse truly accessible to all communities for the first time in history.
“This year, to mark the upcoming 100th Anniversary of the passage of the 19th amendment in 2020, the campaign will have a special emphasis on historic buildings and sites that celebrate the contributions of women in Main Street communities across America, both historic and modern day. Through this, Partners in Preservation will seek to uncover and raise awareness of women's often-unrecognized contributions to American history and society.”

"It’s time to tell our story. The year 2020 marks the 150th anniversary of women first voting in Utah and the modern nation. It also marks the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment, granting women’s suffrage throughout the United States, and the 55th anniversary of the Voting Rights Act, protecting voting rights of women and men of racial minorities. Better Days 2020 believes that by popularizing Utah’s history in creative and communal ways, we can challenge Utahns to live up to this great legacy of women's advocacy." -Better Days 2020
