Payson Fourth Ward: Stained Glass Details

Some of the stained glass in the chapel is original; other windows have either been updated or did not have stained glass originally. Even the original stained glass, while simple, fits the building quite well.

Payson Fourth Ward: Exterior Details

The arched portion of the windows have some stained glass that is still present in the building. We'll take a closer look at that in another post. The details in the tower (with some additions) and moldings have been well preserved.

Payson Fourth Ward

Built in 1910, the Payson Fourth Ward isn't the oldest LDS chapel in the city (that goes to the Payson Second Ward), but it is the most grand, with a tall, unique tower.

In 1983, the building was sold to the Catholic Church, and it continues to serve in that capacity.

Clinton Ward

The historic chapel in Clinton, built in 1910, is probably the earliest example of prairie architecture that can be found in the Mormon Church.

The building was sold to the city of Clinton in 1977. It's changed ownership a few times. In 1992, it was purchased by an enthusiast who restored a lot of the building and used it as a reception center. Currently, it is vacant and for sale.
