This morning Utah lost one of it’s most beautiful and one of it’s oldest buildings.
Construction of the Provo Tabernacle began in 1883 and was completed in 1898. It has hosted presidential visits, numerous church leaders, and the church services of many denominations. Our family lives only four blocks from this wonderful structure. It inspires wonder every time we walk or drive past it.

Provo Tabernacle Fire
This morning at 2:43 the the four alarm fire was reported. When we walked over to see the tabernacle at 9 am the Tabernacle was still burning.
It took the early Mormon settlers 15 years to build the Tabernacle. It has since been enjoyed by hundreds of thousands of people. My own family has attended church services and various performances over the years we’ve lived here. Now in just a few short hours it is gone.
