Randolph Tabernacle

It took a long time to build this beautiful little building in Randolph, Utah (population: about 500). In fact, excavation for the building began in 1898, and it wasn't dedicated until 1914, by George Albert Smith.

This is a building that is not technically a "tabernacle," as it has never served as anything but a ward chapel. However, it is included on most lists, including Richard Jackson's list in Places of Worship, because of its architectural merits.

The building received a sensitive remodel in 1984, including a one-story addition on the back. This building still houses services every Sunday. It's a beautiful building in a beautiful area.

The building was closed when I visited, but some nice interior pictures can be found here.
