Provo Tabernacle

Provo TabernacleThe Provo Tabernacle served as a tabernacle of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints from 1898 to 2010 in downtown Provo, Utah, United States. It is a historic icon of Provo and has been home to many religious and cultural events. All but the outer walls of the building were destroyed by fire in December 2010. The Church of Jesus Christ preserved the remaining outer walls and built a new foundation and interior as part of the Provo City Center Temple, completed in 2016.There is confusion as to whether Brigham Young or John Taylor dedicated the first tabernacle. At the dedication, Brigham Young expressed that the tabernacle was “entirely too small” and should have been completed 12 years previously
