Chevy Chase Ward Meetinghouse Exterior


Located at the western edge of Washington DC, across the street into Maryland, this building is the current meeting place of Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. From what I understand, he attends this ward more often than his ward in Nevada. If Mitt Romney becomes President of the United States in November and moves into the White House, this building is where he would most likely attend church. I am unsure of when the building was built yet, but my guess is sometime in the 50’s.

Manila YSA Ward Cultural Hall


Quite possibly the best Stage and Cultural Hall I have seen. I’m not sure why I didn’t close the curtains and sliding partitions, so I may have to go back.

Manila YSA Ward Exterior


This is definitely in my top five mid-century meetinghouses. The steeple is beautiful in its simplicity. And the repetition of structure and gabled windows is stunning. The chapel is directly across the street from a much newer meetinghouse and the American Fork Temple. I am unsure of the original name, date or architect, but hope to find out soon. If anyone has info, please share.
