That’s gorgeous. I’ve been meaning to visit Spring City for a few years now.

Isn’t it beautiful? On the whole, it’s probably my favorite building so far. Simply exquisite in every detail. And I even liked the addition they did which I’ll post pics of later.

Looking at the rostrum, I’m curious what the four wood armchairs which sit perpendicular to the line of site are for.
Gorgeous, though. Gorgeous.

Great question. I didn’t stay for a service, but my guess is they are for the speakers. The larger seats facing the audience are probably for the ward leadership, and the small chair on each side of the leadership chairs would probably be for the chorister and organist.

Also, do you have exterior shots yet?
Yes, I do. I’ll post them probably later this week. One of the facades of the newer wing had scaffolding up unfortunately when I was there. But that was away from the main chapel.

You can look at the Friends of Spring City Website to see photos of the building or google Spring City images.

I grew up in Spring City and my dad who is a general contractor has done work on the building. Great Memories. Yes, the bishop and his counselors or visiting stake presidents sit in the larger chairs in the back. To think in 1974 or 75 this building was slated to be torn down by the Church and our bishop then (Osral Allred) fought to save it. It took getting Pres. Kimball to drive by on his way to the Manti Temple re-dedication to realize that those below him where making a mistake. He stopped the demolition. Spring City would not be the historic town that it is without it’s chapel. It’s sad that the Church has torn down so many historic buildings.
