Manila YSA Ward Chapel Interior


I’m not sure why so many of the pews have been removed, but there are a lot of chairs on both the right and left aisles that appear to be used in their place.

Manila YSA Ward Cultural Hall


Quite possibly the best Stage and Cultural Hall I have seen. I’m not sure why I didn’t close the curtains and sliding partitions, so I may have to go back.

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.
