Payson Second Ward

I've had a conflict in identifying this building--I've seen it identified as the Payson Second Ward; the LDS Church History Library identified it as the Payson Fifth Ward. Whether it's the 5th or 2nd ward, it was built in 1896.

As you can see, there have been many changes--most notably, the grand entrance facing the corner was renovated into classrooms and offices. I'm not sure how I feel about the exterior, which is now a light shade of green.

It is still a lovely building, and the chapel is stunning. Incidentally, this chapel also used to have a social hall that is now demolished and the cultural hall (connected to the meetinghouse) stands in its place:
