New Insides for a Grand Old Building
The heating and air conditioning were often on the blink; the old wiring system was constantly overloading and throwing breakers; the plumbing dated from the turn of the century! It was time to remodel the Church Administration Building.
And so in July 1975, the General Authorities moved into the towering Church Office Building while the workmen remodeled and renovated the decades-old building at 47 East South Temple Street.
Two years later, in September 1977, enough of the building was finished that the First Presidency, the Council of the Twelve, and most of the First Quorum of the Seventy could move in.
The next few pages show both modern improvements and historical details of the Church Administration Building.
