Bountiful Tabernacle: Chapel Interior

The Bountiful Tabernacle has changed greatly from its original form. One renovation had built the overflow onto the north end of the chapel (seen on the left side of this picture).

You can see the overflow being used in this picture of a meeting in progress. You can also see some more details that used to be on the walls--too bad they're not there anymore.

The painting of Joseph Smith was removed in the 1970s renovation, and is now in the Church's collection. However, a small copy of the painting is in the lobby:

Organ pipes now are at the front of the chapel:

However, it's nice that the later renovation restored the symmetry of the chapel, including the windows on the north end.

At the back is a small balcony with beautiful stairs. I'll show some more details of them in a later post.
