Utah's state entry was a cozy club house of modern style of architecture erected by the Utah Commission near the state buildings entrance.  It  was erected from designs of Director-General Whitaker, and was a replica of a residence of the state of Utah. Mrs. Inez Thomas was appointed hostess of the  building. The two-story structure was  50 by 50 feet and  cost 6,000 dollars.

Inside, the Utah  building included  a reception area,   with four side rooms. The second story housed five rooms.   Over  300 different photographic and works of art pertaining to the state were hung throughout the building.

Each room's carpet was a different color.

Visitors were given a small burlap souvenir of salt from the Great Salt Lake.

On October 10 (Utah Day), 250 Tabernacle singers performed for guests.

At the Mines and Metallurgy Palace, Utah had an  impressive display of  gold, including a   machine built of burnished steel, copper and silver 14 by 30 feet, and entirely covered with a glass  case.  Iron and iron-based products were shown in another and the state proudly showcased  precious stones, including topaz, garnet, ruby and opal.

























Besides the exhibits in the Mines and Metallurgy Building, Utah displayed in the  Educational Palace, and the Agricultural Pavilion. It received 3 grand prizes, 140
gold medals, as well as several minor awards.

The Utah building is one of the few Fair buildings still standing today.  After the Fair, it was moved to a residence south of Forest Park.
