Visiting the Tabernacle in Salt Lake City

The Tabernacle

Home of the world-famous Mormon Tabernacle Choir

Completed in 1867, the Tabernacle was built as a place for Church members to gather and hear the words of their leaders. Brigham Young directed the building should be designed so people could see and hear the speaker without impediment. To do this successfully, bridge-building techniques were used to construct the Tabernacle roof so that support pillars were not needed.
