Living in Harvard-Yale Neighborhood
This east side neighborhood is more than 100 years old with among Utah’s most diverse offerings of homes representing classic revivals of the late 19th and 20th century especially of the English Tudor and English Cottage architectural styles. The area encompasses the Yalecrest Historic District which was added to the National Register of Historic Places Collection in 2007. The streets, many of which are named after schools in the Ivy League, are elegant and stately, lined with mature trees for shade from the intense sun. Residents get one of the valley’s choicest views of the Wasatch Mountains to the east and a full panorama of SLC’s downtown and the Oquirrh Mountains to the west.

Many students attend Uintah Elementary, which celebrated its centennial in 2015, as well as Bonneville Elementary, Clayton Middle School and East High School, which was featured in the popular film High School Musical. The neighborhood also houses The Anderson-Foothill Library, a branch of the Salt Lake City library system. SLC has the highest per capita square footage dedicated to public library services of any American city. The University of Utah is located just two to three minutes from the neighborhood.
