I have worked most of the time on the tabernacle. The men worked hard and faithfully with food and clothing scarce. It was not uncommon for a man to work all day with only milk as food. Most of our clothes were so patched that you could hardly tell the original, and we wore homemade shoes that, when they became wet, they spread, and when dried they were so hard we could hardly get them on. Tabernacles, such as the Ogden Pioneer Tabernacle, were the second most significant buildings that graced Mormon settlements, and were far more widespread in construction and use than temples.
The Ogden Tabernacle served as the center of the community and region. After its dedication in , the adobe and red-pine-wood building served many function in the community, including as a meeting hall for stake conferences and other religious meetings. McKay spoke in the tabernacle in addition to many other general authorities and auxiliary presidencies. Perhaps the most famous discourse given inside was Elder Melvin J. The building also served as the meeting place and performance hall for an Ogden Tabernacle Choir, spoken of by President Heber J.
After the choir disbanded in the presentation became in part a community sing-along, with the audience participating in some of the parts. The pioneer tabernacle also served as the home of the Weber Stake Academy—now Weber State University—for a short stint in In February of , the Stake Board of Education determined that the academy had outgrown the facilities available at the Second Ward Chapel where it had been meeting and decided to move it to the tabernacle.
After some renovations, the Academy sessions opened in the tabernacle in April, but after two weeks, the question arose about whether it was legal to use the tabernacle for such purposes.
At the time, under the provisions of federal antipolygamy legislation, particularly the Edmunds-Tucker Act of it was very possible that the building would be confiscated by the federal government if it were used for non-religious purposes. So, on May 2, , the academy ended its month-long stay in the tabernacle. A postcard of the Ogden Pioneer Tabernacle after the s renovations.
In order to continue to meet the needs of the growing community, the tabernacle was renovated in , adding decoration to and improving the exterior and the interior. By the s, however, more needed to be done—on May 9, , George E. In , construction began on a new tabernacle for the eleven stakes of the Church existing in Weber County.
On 12 February , the new tabernacle was dedicated by President David O. If any enter to scoff or to sneer, may they be so influenced as to remain to pray.

The old Pioneer Tabernacle remained on the Square for a number of years after the dedication of the newer structure, abandoned for a while and later serving as a branch genealogical library.
The Gospel of Christ is not limited in its powers to save to this life, or this world alone. Its power enters into the spirit-world.
And by its proclamation in the world of spirits the fathers will learn that they are dependent upon the children still in this world for the performance of the outward ordinances of the Gospel; hence, their hearts will be turned to the children. The children on the earth will learn that it is within their power to attend to ordinances of the Gospel for their progenitors; hence, the hearts of the children will be turned to the fathers.
It is because of this—because of the knowledge restored by Elijah, that the Latter-day Saints, wherever they have planted their feet, have sought, even in the days of their greatest poverty, to build a temple, the proper place in which to attend to these ordinances for the dead; and they thus witness to the world that the hearts of the children are turned to the fathers.
Temples are the most sacred and important structure built by Mormons. At the time Elder Roberts wrote the above, three temples were operating in Utah, with a fourth—and most grand—to be dedicated in the Great Salt Lake City within the next few years.
As a temple consciousness grew among the Mormons, and to meet the needs of the growing Church, more temples began to be constructed. As early as , President Joseph F. All three of these temples—the Laie Hawaii, Cardston Alberta, and Mesa Arizona temples—not only broke ground in location, but in style and structure, preparing the way for further changes that would come in the Ogden and Provo temples. While the Utah Pioneer temples remind one of cathedrals or castles, the Cardston, Laie, and Mesa temples are more reminiscent of the architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright with elements of ancient American ruins.
As can be expected, change did not always come easily. Some even wondered whether it was proper to establish a new type of temple architecture. To response to the criticism raised by the Saints over the new temple designs in , President Samuel E. Woolley of the Hawaiian mission was invited to give a talk. The construction of these three new temples both responded to and enacted great desires for more of these sacred structures.
Widtsoe noted that:. There is at present an unusual increased interest in temple activity… [and] the number of temples is also increasing. The Hawaiian temple has only recently been dedicated; the Canadian temple is being rushed to completion, the Arizona temple is being planned, and numerous communities in the Church are anxiously waiting and praying for the time that they may have temples.
Ogden was one of those communities waiting and praying for a temple. General authorities took note of the push for a temple in Ogden and made efforts to respond. On 12 December , Elder Hyrum G. Smith, patriarch to the Church, told the Saints in Ogden that they would one day be required to build a temple.

Even with this setback, the people kept up hope for the future.
They even had encouragement from Church officials in doing so. Elder Melvin J. Ballard visited the Ogden Tabernacle in and preached to the genealogical society of Ogden. Elder Ballard, observing the congregation, stated that:. This is an inspiring sight, my dear brethren and sisters, a convincing testimony of your interest in this great and important feature of the latter-day work, Genealogy, the salvation for the living and the dead, for I have remarked before that in no quarter of the Church is there greater interest and activity shown in this particular work than here in these Ogden Stakes.alliance of nations that agreed to band together in the event of war and to support and protect each nation involved. a procedure that may be used to limit or end debate and call for a vote on an issue.
