Washington Square

The City & County Building sits between State Street, Second East, Fourth South, and Fifth South in Salt Lake City, a block called "Washington Square." Named for George Washington, the block is the site of the original 1847 Mormon Pioneer camp in Salt Lake City. This square is the site of many Salt Lake City events, often 200 East Street between it and Library Square is blocked off to create one large event plaza.
