Wasatch Stake Tabernacle – Heber City, Utah

Built in 1887, this is one of the Tabernacles around Utah still standing – it is now used as a city office building but stands as an awesome reminder of what the pioneers did long ago.

Alexander Fortie, Jr. immigrated to America in 1866 from Glosgow, Scotland and was the designer and architect of this tabernacle, he also oversaw the carpentry work during its construction. His tools and tool chest are on display in the D.U.P. Museum.

The Utah Historic Marker outside says:

Built 1887-1889

Architect unknown, construction supervised by Abram Hatch.   Interior remodeled 1930-1931.

The tabernacle is located next to the Amusement Hall in Heber City.
