A little history on the Ezra Thompson Building

Neumont University

In 2013, Neumont Universty moved from South Jordan to downtown Salt Lake City. The university's new home was the renovated Ezra Thompson Building, colloquially known as the old Tribune building. 

The site of the Ezra Thompson Building was once home to The Salt Lake House. The building served as a home station (think hotel) for riders on the Pony Express. When the Pony Express shutdown the Salt Lake House continued as a hotel and saloon.

Then in 1924, the Art Deco-style high-rise was constructed. The building is one of only four high rises to be built in Salt Lake City between World War I and the Great Depression. The building was named for its developer who also happened to be a three-term mayor of the city. The building was designed to include office suites meant for dentists, physicians, and surgeons.

However in the late 1930s, the building was sold to The Salt Lake Tribune Publishing Company. The new owners extensively remodeled the façade and interior spaces. The building was home to The Salt Lake Tribune until 2005.

In 2012, Neumont University began remodeling the building for the computer science focused college. We love our home in downtown Salt Lake City, and we like to think the building inherited us and continues to house the cutting-edge in technology.
