This modest, well-preserved neighborhood earns its name from orchards of apricot and pear trees planted here in the early 20th century. Remnants of these orchards can be seen everywhere from the historic parks to the street names.
The Marmalade Neighborhood is located on the western slope of the hill (200 West to Victory Road/ Columbus Street and between 300 North – 900 North.) This is one of the oldest neighborhoods in the State of Utah and is included within the Capitol Hill Historic District. The majority of homes in the neighborhood were constructed prior to 1930. The neighborhood is characterized by steep, narrow streets, and a variety of architectural structures.
