Your walking tour ends at the ten-acre Washington Square, named after George Washington. The park was an encampment of the Mormon pioneers when their 1,300 mile migration ended here in 1847. The setting sun bathes the façade of the Salt Lake City and County Building with warm hues. The historic landmark has housed local government offices since 1894. The Richardsonian Romanesque design features an elegant clock tower. On top is a statue of Columbia, the female personification of the United States.
