  2. You ought to take a look at the 13th Ward building on 1st South. It’s the third building the the ward has had, and features an imposing mural in the chapel with a pulpit offset to the speaker’s right side to make sure the mural is unobstructed. Plus, the stage in the cultural hall is constructed of large boulders and looks more like a massive fireplace fit for a viking hall.

  3. I was a member of this ward growing up from 1959, until I married in 1970. It was first called the East 12th Ward, and later combined with the West 12th Ward and so the name was changed to just the 12th Ward. Our Bishop was Bill Hesterman who we dearly loved, and he performed our marriage ceremony. Then in 1971 my husband and I moved back into the ward until 1976, 3 children later.
    The 12th Ward was a wonderful ward to grow up in. We met so many different type of people, families, elderly people, and young marrieds going to college. It was a very close ward.
    I am very thankful to have lived in the East 12th, and 12th Ward!

    I heard something scary happened in the basement of this building. Anyone aware of the history?

  5. Does anyone know where I might find a photo of the interior of the 12th ward chapel? I am preparing a presentation and have particular interest in the interior because I understand the architect experimented with an off center pulpit, placing the sacrament table center.

    My husband and I met and married while in the West 12th Ward. In 1963, there was 41 marriages from our ward with 40 of them taking place in the Temple. Daniel H Heaton was our first Bishop. Many of us still keep in touch with each other. At that time, there were only 10 permanent families in the Ward while the rest of us worked or attended the University of Utah. We have many happy memories from this ward and just loved all the people we knew. Ton’s of activities and dances. If you were there at that time, please contact us.
