    Glorious and wonderful memories of the meetinghouse where my Grandfather served as bishop for 15-years (1929-1944). Thank you so much for posting this beautiful picture!

    • I would be interested in chatting with you about your memories of the building. I am taking care of it now and have great interest in its history.

      It is now the home of SaltLakeChoralArtists.org.

    How’s the interior? Is it intact?

    • From what I could see inside, there was still furniture inside from the architecture firm who previously used the building. The ceiling looked in good shape. Not sure how much has been remodeled. My guess is most of the uniquely LDS parts of the building, such as the rostrum have been removed, but I haven’t been inside yet to confirm.

  3. I am currently taking care of the building. A lot of the history was probably lost on the remodel, but I am impressed that they took great pains to restore/re-create the faux oak woodwork that was so typical of the older buildings in this area. It is nearly a lost art. It is now the home of Salt Lake Choral Artists (SaltLakeChoralArtists.org). If you would like to see the inside, you are welcome to contact me at rbkennard@gmail.com.
    I would be very interested in learning more about the building, if any of your readers can help me.
