Provo, Utah Historical Events



2010 December 17
Provo Tabernacle Burns
The fire was spotted by a security guard about 2 am. He had been hired to watch over the equipment for a concert during the Christmas season. He first noticed the smoke coming from the roof area. The fire department was called but the area of the fire was extremely difficult to reach causing the fire to gain an upper hand. In the end, the outer walls remained mostly upright, but the entire roof and inside was demolished. The building was first built from 1883 to 1898, costing about $100,000 at the time. Around 1917, a central spire was removed from the building for safety reasons. See some photos of the tabernacle before and after it was burned.
