Logan Tabernacle: Interior

This tabernacle has intricate details in the woodwork and on the ceiling. The pipe organ dominates the front of the chapel, although it wasn't added until the beginning of the twentieth century. It is one of the largest pipe organs in the state, after the ones in the Conference Center, the Salt Lake Tabernacle, and the new one in the Ogden Tabernacle.

During a renovation in the 1950s, the detailed ceiling was covered with a drop ceiling, and the tabernacle's floor was covered with tiles. A more sensitive renovation in the 1980s reversed those changes and sought to make the tabernacle look more like it originally did.
