Spotlight on Elevator History

The first elevators in the United States were only put into service about 200 years ago, but since then, elevators have evolved quite a bit. Watch this video to hear about some of the earliest elevators serving Salt Lake City and to find out about how elevators have changed over the years.

Once upon a time, elevators were only used to transport supplies up and down inside of buildings, and they weren’t considered safe enough for people to ride. However, that eventually changed and before long, operators were working inside of elevators and helping people get to floors inside of tall buildings. Today, it’s common to install an elevator in a hotel, commercial property, apartment complex, or any building with multiple floors. By selecting the right elevator for your property, you can make it easier for people to navigate their way around inside of your building.
