Oakley Tabernacle

In April 1879 members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints from Tooele, Utah, under direction of Wm. E. Martindale, arrived in Oakley where James Dayley and his two sons had staked claims and built cabins. On Sept. 24, 1882, the Saints were organized into a Ward with Horton D. Haight, Bishop. In 1902 the Cassia Stake Tabernacle was built of native stone, with a seating capacity of 700. It was completed at a cost $12,000. Destroyed by fire in 1965.

This is Daughters of Utah Pioneers historic marker #335 erected in 1967 at Oakley City Park in Oakley, Idaho.
