Timpanogos Chapel

The Timpanogos LDS Chapel is the oldest church building
in Orem. It was built following the organization
of the Timpanogos Ward of the Church of Jesus Christ
of Latter-day Saints in 1895 on property donated by
Thomas J. Patten, Sr. Before it was completely finished,
it was used by the Timpanogos Drama Club for play
presentations. The proceeds from the plays helped
pay for completing the chapel. It was completed
in 1898 and served for many years as a community
center for social and civic functions as well as for
church meetings. The Timpanogos chapel replaced a
combination Church meetinghouse and school located
just to the west of this building. The original log cabin
schoolhouse continued to be used as a school building
until 1900 when it was torn down and replaced by
the Spencer School located further to the west of this
chapel.
This church has been remodeled several times but is
still in use by the LDS Church for church meetings.
