18th Ward Chapel...

... replica was dedicated in 1973.

- The chapel contains the following original parts: Steeple, cornerstone, window frames, doors, benches, pulpit, and the stained glass window. The original chapel was dedicated in 1883 and demolished in 1973.

The 18th Ward of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, one of the original nineteen ecclesiastical wards of Salt Lake Valley, was organized February 14, 1849. My great grandfather was the Bishop of the 18th Ward 1851 to 1878. The original chapel came a couple years after my great grandfather was released.
