National Register of Historic Places in Salt Lake County
The Royle House, one of the finest examples of the Italianate style in Salt Lake City, was one of the earliest "high style" houses constructed along First South, a section that grew into a prestigious residential area during the latter decades of the 19th century. The Royle house and the Meyer House are the only two frame Italianate houses in Salt lake City.
The house served for over thirty years as the home of Jonathan and Eliza Royle, prominent social leaders in legal, cultural, and religious affairs of the community.
