Yalecrest Neighborhood Council March Meeting
Wednesday, March 3, 2021
Minutes excerpt: 1. History and Origins of Yalecrest. Virginia Hylton, second vice president of KEEP Yalecrest, gave a PowerPoint presentation on the history and origins of Yalecrest showing rare photos of its early settlement in the 1870s as well as pictures of the first four homes built near the turn of the century. All four homes remain today and are a viable part of Yalecrest’s housing stock. The advent of electric street cars in 1889 brought more travelers to the eastside and a few decades later, the land known as Douglas Park, was purchased for $200,000 by William Hubbard for development. By the mid-1930s, all 22 subdivisions that currently define Yalecrest, were completed. Hylton’s presentation also delved into the lives of the original homeowners who migrated from the East Coast, as well as those with ties to LDS Church leaders and local retail businesses.

The K.E.E.P. Yalecrest Board of Directors, along with Jordan Valley Water Conservancy District, welcomed Gardencomm members, garden tour owners/guests, street residents, and K.E.E.P. Yalecrest members to a special sampling of the beautiful gardens in our historic neighborhood.
