Kennecott General Manager's Residence
1907, 1928. 3 Circle Dr.

Set near the head of the circular road overlooking McGill, this two-and-one-half-story house of poured concrete was the largest in town, indicating the prominence of the general manager. The building has Craftsman details such as a broad hipped roof with boxed eaves and dormer windows projecting from all four sides of the main roof. In 1928 the NCCC added two one-story wings to the north and west sides, creating a front porch and side porte-cochere.
