Discovering Great Mormon Buildings

Ogden 4th Ward

Ogden 4th Ward Font Room

In the original building, the baptismal font was located directly below this painted mural. Rather than the painting, though, there was some type of art glass window centered in the wall. In 1936, decorative railings were added around this font. Sometime prior to 1975, the art glass window was removed and this mural was added over the font. The text on the left wall of the painting says “Then cometh Jesus from Galilee to Jordan unto John, to be baptized of him. And in the lower right corner is the artists name, C. E. Tillotson. During a building remodel in 1975, the font was moved to the other side of the room (to the right of this picture) and directly linked to new showers, changing rooms and restrooms. The font hole was filled in, floored over and the mural was preserved.

Ogden 4th Ward Tower Room

This Tower Room is located directly above the main entry of the building and was originally called the Prayer Room. It has chandeliers, extremely plush carpet, a fireplace and lots of paintings. The current use is for firesides, special meetings, and setting people apart for various callings.

Ogden 4th Ward Exterior

I have changed the previous entries of this building listed under the Buenaventura Ward to the Ogden 4th Ward. The 4th Ward is the historical and original name of both the building and the ward, while Buenaventura is the current name. So here is an exterior image of this beautiful and striking building. The area above the entry is a large room now called the Tower room, but was originally called the Prayer room. I’ll post additional pictures of this unique room shortly.
