The Plat of Zion in Salt Lake City, Utah

Based on an idealized template sketched by Frederick
G. Williams under the direction of Joseph Smith in 1833 for the development of new towns in Missouri, Salt Lake City’s Plat of Zion was developed in 1849 as the initial design for the new Mormon settlement in what would later become Utah.
