A The Gardo House as a residence for all Church Presidents
In October of 1880, John Taylor succeeded Brigham Young as president of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. At that time, George A. Cannon and other members of the Church’s Quorum of the Twelve suggested that the new prophet move into the Gardo House, but President Taylor repeatedly refused to do so. It was not until Church members voted unanimously at general conference on April 9, 1879, to make the Gardo House the official residence for LDS Church presidents that he accepted their decision. A committee was then appointed to direct the finishing of the structure and to furnish its interior. Electricity came to Salt Lake City’s Main Street in 1880, and the Gardo House undoubtedly had that modern convenience.
