Sugar House Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Despite its pleasant name, nary a single cube of sugar was made in the residential and commercial neighborhood called Sugar House. This southeast section of Salt Lake City got its start in 1853, and an early dream was to indeed produce sugar here. Sugar was a rare commodity in pioneer times, and the settlers’ answer was not sugarcane, but the sugar beet. A test factory was constructed and equipment shipped from Liverpool, England, but a sugar mill never materialized. Instead, the facility became a paper mill."
