Discovering Great Mormon Buildings

Claremont Ward Chapel Interior


I am not positive, but believe that this space used to be the chapel, and through the arches is where the Cultural hall / overflow used to be. Through the left arch you can see the wood paneling and doors leading to the main entry lobby of the building.

2334 Stuart Street
Berkeley, CA
Architect: Possibly Leslie Dean Price (He designed the Overlook chapel in Walnut Creek – a similar looking building)
Dedicated 1955. Renamed Oakland 5th Ward in 1965. Ward dissolved in 1970 and sold to a Christian church – possibly the Unification Church (Moonies). Sold to Hare Krishna’s several years after this.
Now the New Jagannatha Puri (ISKCON Berkeley Hare Krishna Temple)
