Craig Wirth: The Salt Palace and its ginormous beginnings


SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (ABC4 News) – This was the future, it was the Salt Palace. The County said it was the missing link that we needed. 

The Tribune headlined the first architectural drawings “A magnificent plan for civic center.” And a half million concrete blocks and 17 million dollars later, it was there….

The unbelievable Salt Palace.

25 year later, after the Jazz played in the 14,000 seat arena, it was now too small and too old and a new one had to be built.
