Allen Park aka 'Hobbitville' has apparently been saved

Pretty cool that this landmark is being saved. Seems like Sugar House in particular has fallen victim over the years to runaway redevelopment.

Salt Lake City scoops up ‘Hobbitville’ for $7.5 million after previous offer rejected

I grew up on Wilson Ave. about 1800 E. As a kid I rode my bike to Allen Park many times. Westminster College had a football team and we would ride down and watch the games.


That is awesome. Pretty much the only thing I know about Westminster football is that George Siefert was once the head coach…just a couple years removed from being a Ute linebacker.
