“Renovating the Tabernacle,” Ensign, Sept. 2007, 22–26
While the Salt Lake Tabernacle was closed to the public for two years, workers carried out an extensive renovation on the 140-year-old building.
“I love this building,” said President Gordon B. Hinckley at a press briefing on October 1, 2004. “I don’t want anything done here which will destroy the historical aspect of this rare gem of architecture. … I want the old original Tabernacle, its weak joints bound together and … strengthened and its natural and wonderful beauty preserved.”
Following are photographs of the renovation.
