Logan 6th Ward Exterior


This Gothic style church is in a prominent location of Logan. The cornerstone was laid in 1908, the first meeting held in 1909, and the building completed in 1910. The Dedication was performed by James E Talmage once the building was completely paid off in 1917. A Cultural hall was added to the west of the building in 1927 and dedicated in 1930. The building was sold between 1972 and 1979. By 1979 the building was a printing shop called Deseret Towers in which no major modifications were made to the building. Recently the building has served as the Maranatha Baptist Church and is currently called the Alpine Church. The steeple has been significantly modified as has the interior chapel space.

Smithfield 4th Ward Exterior


Quite a nice design and similar to the Salt Lake 12th Ward meetinghouse that was built a year later. Both buildings were designed with a window at the chamfered corner. The window in the Salt Lake building was an octagon, while here it was a circle that brought natural light into the chapel. Unfortunately, as you can see, this window was removed. Similar to both buildings are a tower marking the entrance. The Salt Lake tower makes a stronger statement, while this tower is obscured by the horizontal classroom wing that intersects the tower and chops off the bottom half. This building has a steeple at the top of the tower, while the other doesn’t. And the original window at the tower and entry here were either glass block or gridded, similar to the Salt Lake chapel. Now there is a standard double hung window at the tower and a standard storefront glazing at the entry.

Logan 1st Ward Pew


These appear to be original pews in the chapel. Looking at the base of the pew shows that the floor slopes down to the front of the chapel. Also, I have been neglecting to list the architects on this building, which I have done here and added to the previous posts.

Logan 1st Ward Chapel Balcony


The doors on both sides of the chapel lead directly to classrooms, which is quite a nice feature. The three sets of double entry doors lead directly to a lobby that in turn leads to the columned entry off the street – all set on a strict classically-influenced axis. Here is an exterior picture showing the entry. At both sides of the lobby are stairs leading up to the balcony. And at the two upper level corners are classrooms. The windows of these rooms can be seen in the exterior photo linked above.

Somehow I incorrectly labeled the window detail post last week. It’s not the 4th Ward as I originally labeled it, but is from this building, the 1st ward.

Utah State Meetinghouse Entry


All of the detailing on this building is consistent with the overall form of the building. Including these ‘golden toaster’ door handles that I am in love with. Good design will show themes carried through no matter the scale.

Utah State Meetinghouse Chapel Interior


There are actually two chapels in this building that are similar but have minor differences. This is the West chapel, which appears to be the primary chapel since it is slightly longer and has a decorative grill at the front above the pulpit. The other chapel is called the East chapel and is in line with the other chapel. In other words, the two Chapels are connected but do not open up to each other and the Cultural Hall is not connected to either Chapel.

Spring City Ward Sacrament Table


Centered in the room and in front of the pulpit, this is the focal point of the service and of the chapel space. As a previous commenter stated, this is an altar, but we don’t call it that for some reason, so I reverted back to the much more practical ‘Sacrament Table.’

Spring City Ward Balcony Vestibule


I don’t know if it was intentional or not, but I love that the slotted grille at the top of the door is a beehive.

Brighton Branch Lobby


In the original plans, this was called the Multi-Purpose room and it had a wood-burning fireplace rather than the gas fireplace shown.

Brighton Branch Chapel Interior


One of the few buildings I’ve seen with not only windows at the front of the rostrum, but asymmetrical windows. And the glazing isn’t frosted. It really provides a nice connection with the outside surroundings.
