Originally the Eagle Gate marked the entry to LDS President Brigham Young's private property at the center of the city. The public was allowed to use the gate to gain access to City Creek Canyon, which was the location of the city water supply and the only available timber in the area. The original eagle was hand-carved in wood by Ralph Ramsay, but it was replaced in 1963 by the current eagle with a larger 20 foot wingspan. The original sculpture can be seen at the Daughters of the Utah Pioneers Museum.
