Historic Temple Video Series: Uintah Stake Tabernacle (1907)

Dedicated in 1907, the Uintah Stake Tabernacle in Vernal Utah would serve for about 40-50years before a new Stake Center made it unnecessary. The Church had plans to demolish the building, but local residents petitioned for it to be preserved. In the end the Church chose to make it a new temple instead.

This is, of course, my attempt to recreate the tabernacle as it would have looked than.

  1. I put a hasty comment yesterday as I had just got home from the temple and was heading for bed. I appreciate that this video starts off inside the tabernacle to let us see that it in fact had been a tabernacle. That was an excellent touch. Did you have photos of the old interior or documents describing it? I would be interested to know.

    1. I have a few (very few) photos of the interior. The CHL has a digitized collection of interior and exterior photos of the tabernacle that was useful. Because of copyright, you can view but not download them. Anyway, I requested and was granted access, and that was rather helpful.
