I have a better idea: Rebuild the Old Provo Tabernacle on its original location. It would fulfill the role as a venue for community events, concerts, stake conferences, graduations, funerals, etc., that the temple cannot.


@Chachi. A nice sentiment, and I suppose Provo could use more community venues. But the Provo Temple is the busiest temple in the entire Church, and a second temple would serve to take some of the pressure off. As worthy and useful a new secular building might be, the building of a new temple is something to be celebrated, on the other side of the veil, as well as this side.

@Rita52: I'm not talking about the Provo Tabernacle, which will be rebuilt as the Provo City Center Temple. I'm talking about the Old Provo Tabernacle--the building whose remains this article discusses. At one time, the Old Provo Tabernacle and the Provo Tabernacle sat adjacent to each other on the same block.

I, too, celebrate the rebirth of the Provo Tabernacle as a temple.
