About McCune Mansion | Alfred McCune Home

Salt Lake City, Utah

Salt Lake City is home to about 200,000 residents. It is the capital and most populated city in Utah.

Salt Lake City was founded in 1847 by Brigham Young and some of his Mormon followers. They irrigated and cultivated the arid valley. Salt Lake City remains the headquarters of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, though less than half of the population of Salt Lake City proper are Mormon today.

Salt Lake City was originally known as “Great Salt Lake City” due to its proximity to the Great Salt Lake. In 1868, the name was changed to omit “Great” and the city became known as Salt Lake City.

The McCune Mansion Information:

The McCune Mansion is used for special social events.

The McCune Mansion was built between 1900 and 1901 for Alfred W. McCune and his wife Elizabeth at 200 North and Main Street on Capitol Hill in Salt Lake City, Utah. Today, it is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Alfred McCune was born in Calcutta, India. Though his father belonged to the Church of Latter-Day Saints, Alfred, it appears never joined. His wife, Elizabeth was also an LDS Church member. Alfred was a successful railroad builder and he owned business interests throughout Utah and in parts of Montana, British Columbia, and South America. McCune was respected by his contemporaries for his integrity, his congenial personality, and his generous donations to worthy causes. He was also civic-minded and politically ambitious.

The McCune Mansion is a replica of a house that Alred and Elizabeth McCune saw while driving on Riverside Drive in New York City.

Ghosts and the Paranormal at the McCune Mansion in Salt Lake City, Utah:

Lights go on and off when no one is inside the home. Doors that are without locks become “locked” inexplicably. Doors also open and close without explanation. Cold spots have also been reported.

The apparition of a young girl, with blonde hair has been reported walking into and out of a mirror in the west hall and through various rooms of the McCune Mansion. She is blamed for objects moving without explanation in the building. She is also blamed for strange footprints that begin and end in the middle of a room.

Music can be heard from time to time at the McCune Mansion, when no one in the building is playing music.
