Dry Creek Stake: Stained Glass Windows Detail

See the last post on the Dry Creek Stake Center for details on the historic windows. They were reshaped and installed in this building, and they are lovely. I am so glad they were saved.




It's a pity that the Springville Second Ward building was burned down, but at least these items are present in this building as a reminder of our heritage. Incidentally, it looks like a chapel built in the historic district of Payson was also given these stained glass windows:

 

It's pretty clear on Google Street View that the stained glass is exactly the same. Either the glass in the Payson Chapel was similarly salvaged from the Springville 2nd Ward, or it was specifically created for this chapel (it had some modifications because it's located in the historic district). Either way, I'm happy to see it there.
