Church Office Building – Things to do in Salt Lake City
The Church Office Building is home to the day-to-day operations of the Mormon church. It stands as downtown Salt Lake City’s highest building, with 28 levels above ground and three below. Completed in 1972 upon the original sites of Brigham Young’s barn and corrals, the tower houses most of the departments of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. On either side are two four-story wings with a map of the world on the exteriors, signaling that this is a global church.
Interesting sights for tourists include a 66 by 15 foot mural in the lobby depicting the ascension of Jesus Christ after his resurrection. Two observation decks on the 26th floor provide magnificent panoramic views of Temple Square, Salt Lake City, and the surrounding mountains. Join us on the Salt Lake City Tour or the Mormon Tabernacle Choir Tour.
