PROVO — The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints announced Wednesday it has acquired two properties immediately south of the Provo Tabernacle, which was gutted by a fire in December.
"The church is still evaluating plans for the Provo Tabernacle and surrounding area and will share details as they become available," LDS Church spokesman Scott Trotter said. "To provide options moving forward we have acquired the hotel and restaurant immediately south of the Tabernacle."
Owners of the Provo Travelodge Motel and Los 3 Amigos Restaurant, respectively, verified the purchases.
The Travelodge has been located on Provo's University Avenue between 100 and 200 South streets since 1959, while Los 3 Amigos has been open since 1992.
