Smithfield Tabernacle Detail


Construction began in April of 1883 and was completed in December of 1902. Unique to this building is the phrase “Holiness to the Lord” placed over the entry which is typically reserved for Temples. The 6.1 magnitude earthquake to hit the Logan area in 1962 was reported to have badly damaged the building stating that it “probably should be condemned.” (30 Aug 1962 Herald Journal) Today the building appears to be owned by the city as some type of recreation hall. I am unsure of the date the building was sold.
