Long Description:
Clift Building

1919-1920, James L. Chesebro

Virtue Clift constructed this building in 1920 in honor of her late husband Francis D. Clift who was a merchant, mining entrepreneur, and real estate developer. The Clift Building originally housed the United Cigar Stores Company, the Shubach Optical Company, Western Union Telegraph, and the Kinema Theater. The theater continued operating here until 1968. The Clift Building is one of Salt Lake City's largest terra-cotta faced buildings. The upper floor of this eclectic building is the most decorative. Look for protruding bay windows with Greek pediments at the corners and the bracketed cornice.
