I would like to see a list of the 92 different tabernacles that were built and which ones are still standing today.

Bakersfield, CA

My fondest memories are in the Archer Ward, Sunny Dell, Idaho, outside Rexburg. My grandparents, uncles and aunts all served in that ward just a mile from their farm since the late 1920's. In the summers, as we traveled from California, we looked forward to spending family reunions, Primary days and Sundays there. Our greatest fun was playing tag and hide n'seek on the front lawn, Sunday nights till 9:00pm, while family and neighbors chatted after Sacrament Meeting.

I'm thankful my parents took the time and expense to keep us aware of our heritage and involved in the life that inhabited that ward building. Now I'm curious when it was built. Although I no longer share the beliefs of my LDS family specifically, I will always cherish our sweet memories in our Mormon chapel and community.

Thank you for this article that reminds us what we owe our heritage, years after we may have forgotten.
