The 15th Ward Chapel

The old chapel that was built in 1904 and was previously used for the 15th Ward of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Salt Lake City.

Built in 1900 and dedicated in 1906, The addition to the west of the chapel is a cultural hall and was built in 1931. The church sold the chapel in the late sixties when the ward was discontinued and it was merged into the 34th ward. (thank you Samuel Roberts)
