Ogden Seventeenth Ward

The Ogden 17th Ward, located at 2873 Quincy, was built from 1925-1927.

The chapel was later sold by the Church and is now known as the Potter's House Christian Center.

Now, here's where it gets a bit complicated. This building originally had 15 stained glass windows in the chapel and in a few other areas. However, at least four of the windows were moved to another LDS Church nearby:

There they are!

This raises some questions. Did the Church retain ownership of all of the original stained glass windows, or just these four? Are the others in storage, or still in the original building? This, of course, comes down to my just not having enough time (yet) to visit the original building, but I'm in the process of reaching out to them, so if I get any new details, I'll edit this post. But for now, the next post will bring some interior views of these beautiful windows.
