Salt Lake 13th Ward Exterior
The urban flight by LDS members out of Salt Lake City continues with the generous donation of this building and land to a local charity yesterday. The building has been vacant the last four years and will be demolished to make way for the Hope Lodge, a housing facility for cancer patients. Built in 1951, largely by the ward members, the building was one of three remaining meetinghouses in the downtown area of Salt Lake City, the others being the 17th Ward located behind the Conference Center and the 8th Ward located behind the Library. This Colonial Revival building was uniquely placed on the site at a 45 degree angle to the corner that it sits on.
