In my exploring of the Utah and neighboring states I have come across many tithing offices, tithing barns, tithing granaries and more.

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (sometimes called the L.D.S. Church or the Mormons) settled a large part of the areas here and members of the church would donate 10% of their increase to the church – they would also barter for what they needed, trade grain for eggs, etc. Now the members of the church donate with money, but at the time when donations were grain, eggs, chickens, cloth and more these buildings were needed to handle all of that.

I have read many places that there are 28 tithing houses still standing, I started this page to keep track of the tithing buildings I come across.
