  1. Wish i had more info that’s my home town. I know the interior is quite unique, and the chapel has a separate mothers room high in the back seperated from the main chapel by glass.

    I would recommend checking out the Blackfoot tabernacle. Now a funeral home and formerly a civic center. Its quite interesting.

    also immediately behind the tabernacle is Blackfoot’s first Seminary Building. It has a domed foyer. Now it houses a law office, but the lawyers are friendly to the church.

    I love the work you are doing. We have such a rich history of buildings in the church.

    My family on both sides attend there. One aunt, 90+ still lives in the ward. My grandfather was the caretaker there for several years. I probably have some pictures of the inside, but mostly of family events, like Thanksgiving dinner for a hundred or so. Any interest?
