Brigham’s vision – June 28


streets wide enough

for teams of oxen

to turn


streets wide enough

for legions

of followers

to learn


streets wide enough

for the pavings of heaven

for roadways of jasper,

carnelian and gold


streets for the prayings

of a new



streets wide and


for the blessing

of all.


(Brigham Young, Salt Lake City, 1847)
