Fisher MansionThe Victorian mansion was built in 1893 by architect Richard Kletting (designer of the Utah State Capitol). The grounds also include a carriage house. Built for Albert Fisher, president of the Fisher Brewing Company, the mansion was leased to the Catholic Church in 1940 and was later used as a homeless shelter for men who struggled with alcohol and drug addiction.
