The Demolished Salt Lake podcast

Chris Jensen, a M.A. in Historic Preservation student, was a guest on the Demolished Salt Lake City podcast on September 20. He spoke about the history of Wall Avenue Baptist Church/Pioneer Post 66, a place at the center of the Black Civil Rights movement in Ogden, Utah. Chris documented the property during a class he took in spring, in which he learned research methods to identify the stories of places that may be missed through traditional archival research and how to make a case for their historic significance. Goucher awarded Chris the 2022 M.A.H.P. Stephen K.F. and Katharine W. Lee Prize for his work.
