Art City Inn was originally built in 1892 by Moses and Anna Kearns Johnson. Moses was a prominent actor and son of the founder of Springville, Aaron Johnson. At the time, the inn was known as the Johnson Hotel and was one of three hotels in Springville, Utah.
Throughout the following decades, it would be run as an inn under the names of Kearns House, Manitou Hotel, Valley Tavern Hotel, amongst others. In the early 2000s, most of the major systems were updated and it was then run as a Victorian-style bed and breakfast for several years. Finally in 2021, extensive renovations were started and then finished in 2022 to turn it into what you see today. Welcome to Art City!
