Discovering Great Mormon Buildings

Manila YSA Ward Exterior


This is definitely in my top five mid-century meetinghouses. The steeple is beautiful in its simplicity. And the repetition of structure and gabled windows is stunning. The chapel is directly across the street from a much newer meetinghouse and the American Fork Temple. I am unsure of the original name, date or architect, but hope to find out soon. If anyone has info, please share.

    that is breathtaking.

    You mention that it’s across the street from another meetinghouse; is it still owned and used by the LDS church? Please say yes….

    I believe this is the building used by the Utah state developmental center for lds church services for their residents.
