"Those Who've Gone Before": Union Stake Tabernacle Stained Glass

This series honors LDS Architecture that is no longer standing. To see all the posts in this series, click here.

The sun shines brightly through stained glass in the Elgin, Oregon meetinghouse. The glass came from the Union Stake Tabernacle in La Grande, Oregon, which was demolished in 1977. LDS Chapels in Baker City, Halfway, Enterprise, Elgin, Pendleton, Pilot Rock, and La Grande all have some stained glass that was salvaged from the tabernacle.

This window was placed above the main entry to the chapel. It may not blend in with the original building all that well, but at least it's there!

Incidentally, I also found this image of the Elgin Building. This must be a classroom or other smaller window, but I wasn't able to find out which one.
