Remembering the Provo Tabernacle
Tragedy struck in Provo early this morning as the historic Provo Tabernacle suffered major damage due to fire. Construction of the tabernacle, with its unique octagonal towers at each of the four corners, began in 1883 and was completed in 1898 at the cost of $100,000. The tabernacle quickly became the community and religious home of Provo. The following historic images of the tabernacle come from the photograph collections held by the L. Tom Perry Special Collections. They capture the beauty of the building and highlight the importance that it holds for the Provo and Utah County communities.
