Historic Mormon Pioneer Chapel - Salt Lake City Tours
A replica of the Pine Valley Chapel stands in the pioneer history village at This Is The Place Park in Salt Lake City. The original was built in 1868 in Pine Valley, near St. George, Utah, by a Scottish convert to the Mormon church. Ebenezer Bryce. Bryce was shipbuilder and using traditional shipbuilding techniques he crafted the log walls on the ground before raising them into place and building the attic as a ship's hull turned upside down. Meetinghouses like this one were used for several purposes beyond worship services, such as for theatrical productions, political meetings, social events, and as a school classroom.
