Before demolition, the Nelson Administration Building on the Taylorsville Redwood Campus was a building in constant use until it’s close in early Spring 2014.
The Administration building was named after the second president of the college, Jay L. Nelson, who was president of the college from 1949 to 1978. The space will be come a park-like space, which will be named after Nelson.
During the recent demolition many people expressed an interest in acquiring a brick as a keepsake.
Salt Lake Community College facilities project manager Kelly Lund has collected 200 bricks from the old building, built in 1966, for those interested in owning a piece of SLCC history.
If you are interested in getting a brick contact Mr. Lund at extension 4431 or email him at firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule a time to pick up your brick.
