Weber Stake Children’s Meeting; Ogden Tabernacle, Ogden, Utah Territory

Elaborate white building with arched windows and ornamental columns

The Ogden Tabernacle, later called the Pioneer Tabernacle, was dedicated in 1859 in Ogden, Utah Territory.

At half past eight o clock on Friday morning the Tabernacle was well filled with parents and children, anxiously expectant, and when Miss Snow rose to address them they were all attention.

The Spirit of the Lord rested upon the speakers and all felt it to be a memorable occasion.
