Pleasant Grove Second Ward

Constructed at the corner of 100 N and 100 E, the Pleasant Grove Second Ward Chapel is a simple but elegant building.

It was built in 1930.

The building's most distinguishing feature was its stained glass--one above the main doorway (visible in the top picture) and one at the end of the chapel (visible above and below). Here's a view of the chapel interior:

It looks like this was taken when David O. McKay was prophet--it looks like his picture on the right. On the left, it looks like a print of the Savior, but it's hard to tell.

The building was sold in 1970 to the American Heritage School:

And finally, in 2002, the building was sold to the John Hancock Charter School, which still occupies the building today.

You'll notice that the stained glass is missing from the doorway. It's gone from the chapel, too. In my next post, I'll post pictures of them.

Also, it looks like the stone carving of "Pleasant Grove 2nd Ward" is still above the door--it's just covered by the school banner, now.
