Look How Far We've Come!

The Canterbury Place reception center was originally built as a chapel in 1914.
As one of Bountiful’s oldest buildings, many residents can remember worshipping
here until 1955 when it was no longer used as a church.
In 1981 the property was first utilized as a reception center. The building was purchased by the Butler family and hosted many wedding ceremonies and receptions.
In 2004, the current owner’s wife began working at The Canterbury Place and fell in love with the building. When she discovered that it was for sale, she begged her husband to purchase it. Together they bought the property and undertook a multi-million dollar renovation to restore its vintage charm.

The building was purchased in December of 2004 by the current owners, making this month their 5 year anniversary of owning this beautiful building!
To celebrate, I found some old pictures of the building that really show off the beautiful renovation:

Before. Picture from early 2004. Notice the blue exterior, vinyl fencing and gazebo.

The only thing that is the same is the beautiful fountain!

Here is the rendering for the remodel that was completed in the summer of 2006

And here is The Canterbury Place as it appears today- much better!
The renovation was inspired by a European/ Tuscan country side.

Every year we continue to add on more details to better the building. If you are interested in touring The Canterbury Place to see it's vintage charm, please call 801.292.5053 or email Ashley at information@thecanterburyplace.com.
