Whittier Ward Stained Glass

This window is located at the rear of the chapel facing the street where the entry is. The Amusement hall was built first, just after the creation of the ward in 1924. After the Hall was completely paid off in 1936, the building was dedicated, and work began on the Chapel. By 1938, the Chapel was completed, paid off, and dedicated by David O McKay. The design of this meetinghouse was done by Church Headquarters as one of the Department Projects, most of which were actually designed by Joseph Don Carlos Young.

Kaysville Tabernacle Stained Glass

This Chapel has some of the nicest stained glass I have seen in an LDS building. The entire room is filled with the glass, and it is not only beautiful, but in really good condition as well, filling the space with a warm, soft and diffused light. I was able to get into the Chapel because of a 160-year anniversary celebration the ward held yesterday afternoon. There were several booths sharing the history and photos of the building. I was surprised and happy to see the two photos I previously posted of this building as part of a display in the lobby. Unfortunately, there was no indication that the photos were mine. I didn’t think this would need to be said, but please do not use photos from this site in any way without at least an acknowledgement as to where you received them. If you have any questions, feel free to email me.
