A newly renovated mansion on the U of U's campus has been given a new name: the Thomas S. Monson Center. The mansion, west wing, and carriage house will house the university's Kem C. Gardner Policy Institute and will also act as a place to host dignitaries, wedding receptions, and other events.
A historic mansion on Utah's premier avenue will serve as an "embassy" to the state and connect the University of Utah to the downtown area.
University officials unveiled the newly renovated Wall Mansion on Wednesday, which will now be known as the Thomas S. Monson Center after the current president of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The Church donated the building to the university in 2014, and President Monson is an alumnus of the university.
