The historic Fisher Mansion will get a second chance at life, thanks to a $150,000 federal grant.
Salt Lake City announced Friday that the riverside mansion will receive a Save America's Treasures grant, which aims to protect culturally significant but endangered buildings. The city will match that money with an additional $150,000.
Since taking office, Mayor Ralph Becker has advocated renovating the mansion and putting it to community use, perhaps as a museum, library or nonprofit meetinghouse. He described it Friday as a "key historic building."
