to Fort Douglas. The majority of the fort was designated
a National Historic Landmark in 1970. The University of Utah Fort
Douglas Heritage Commons is also an Official Project of Save
Americaís Treasures, a public-private partnership between the White
House Millennium Council and the National Trust for Historic Preservation
dedicated to the preservation of our nationís irreplaceable historic and
cultural treasures for future generations.
The purpose of this site, which is part of a creative mitigation effort between the University of Utah and the Utah State Historical Society, is to make information about this unique historic resource more accessible.
A special thanks to Fort Douglas Military Museum, Utah Heritage Foundation, Utah State Historical Society, and the University of Utah's Western Regional Architecture Program and its students for providing most of the information.
Emphasis is on the historic buildings and the preservation minded integration of the University's new Student Housing, which served for a short time as the Athleteís Village for the 2002 Winter Olympic Games.
Your Support of the Fort Douglas Heritage Commons Campaign can be a significant part of our quest to renovate and restore Fort Douglas' historic buildings. Together we can create a community of learning, preserve an historic landmark, and revitalize the past to benefit the future.
