Additional Details:
This structure, originally holding double gates, formed part of the unique cobblestone wall around the property of Brigham Young. For several years it has been preserved as a landmark, having been reconstructed of cut stone. The Eagle, originally of carved wood, has been sheathed with copper, in order that it may withstand the elements. It has no special significance to the Mormons, except that they are always glad to see the outspread and protecting wings of our noble bird of freedom. The Eagle Gate stands at the head of the longest straight street in the world. Ensigne peak is seen in the distance on the left. You are invited to attend Utah's Centennial in 1947.
