Coalville Stake Center

One of the most beautiful tabernacles of the church once stood in the small town of Coalville, in the mountains east of Salt Lake City.

In 1971, it was torn down amidst a great deal of controversy--lawsuits, protests, and more. In its place was built this new stake center:

The stake center contains a few elements from the original tabernacle; most notably, the 3 large stained glass windows. I will be posting pictures of these in my next post.

The only reminder of what once stood on the site is a small plaque on the stake center's steeple.
