I don’t know what to call this church but it is across the street from Swede Town Park so I’ll call it that while I try to research it. All I can find so far is that in 2017 a man being chased by police barricaded himself inside it and got stuck and called the police for help.
It looks very cool and historic and I’ll be looking for info.
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)

This Synagogue was constructed in 1903 at a cost of $9,000, and was one of only 4 synagogues built in Utah during the 19th and early 20th centuries. It was designed by prominent Utah architect Carl Neuhausen. The building’s exotic style results from an eclectic mix of architectural elements, including Byzantine columns at the entry, Moorish arches in the towers, onion-shaped domes, and round-arched windows throughout. The Congregation Montefiore was established in 1895 by a conservative group within Salt Lake City’s Jewish community. This Synagogue served as its home for over 70 years. The building was purchased in the fall of 1987 by Metro-Fellowship, a Christian Church affiliated with Assemblies of God, and renovated by volunteers under the direction of Pastors James Schaedler and Jack Perry.
