Discovering Great Mormon Buildings

Clearfield Ward Exterior

I don’t have much info on this building yet, but will be researching some of its history in the next week. My guess is it was built in the early 1900’s. It has probably been vacant and in disrepair for many years, especially as the homes and town moved away from Main street. I am surpised it is still standing at all, considering the industrialized neighborhood. A wonderful building, though.

Here is a 1935 painting of the building by LeConte Stewart

    I can’t wait to find out if you learn anything about it. I’ve wondered about it since we moved to Clearfield several years ago, but nobody I ask seems to know anything about it….

    I’m also interested to learn more about this building. I’ve lived just over a mile away from it for a couple years now and have never known it was there. Love this blog and appreciate the effort you put into it!

    To LeConte Stewart,
    I just saw this site when looking at another building, but I do know some of the history of this Clearfield building and would be happy to talk about it. Thanks.

      Please share what you know. I do know that my Mom and her siblings attended church there and I remember her saying that it was such a shame that the church allowed it to fall into such disrepair. She is now 83 and still talks about going to church and working at the Navy depo. She did tell me that she remembers there were some LDS Italian WW2 POW’s who were allowed to attend services in there and that she and her friends thought they were so handsome.
