Church Pavilion for Expo ’74

Plans have been finalized for the Church pavilion to be constructed for Expo ’74, to be held in Spokane, Washington, from May through November, 1974. The pavilion, designed to resemble the golden plates from which the Prophet Joseph Smith translated the Book of Mormon, will house the exhibit, “Ancient America Speaks.” With dioramas, movies, artifacts, and literature, the exhibit will tell the story of ancient America as recorded in the Book of Mormon. The pavilion will be supported on piers rising from the waters of the Spokane River. Entrance will be gained by a ramp extending 20 feet from the shoreline. A model of the pavilion is being viewed, below, by President Harold B. Lee, left, President N. Eldon Tanner, and President Marion G. Romney. In addition to the pavilion, the Church also will be represented at Expo ’74 by the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, invited to perform July 18 and 19.
