Clarkston Ward

Clarkston, Utah is such a beautiful little town, tucked in the northwest corner of Cache Valley. It's claim to fame is Martin Harris' grave, as this is where he lived for the last months of his life. 

They also have a unique chapel. Built to replace their old rock meetinghouse, it was dedicated in 1913. It has changed quite a bit over the years.

The major changes include additions (obviously needed), the arched window getting cut down and replaced with regular glass (as opposed to the stained glass), and the removal of some other decorative elements.

I visited this ward building on a cold winter morning when the thermometer read -4 degrees Fahrenheit.

Interior pictures will be coming in the next post!
