Way cool, as they say. My wife and I, too, attended the North Stake Center, as it was called and that was across from the McKay Center apartments, a.k.a. the "Morm Dorms." We lived in the Triads. This was in the very early 1980s. I was a custodian at the North Stake Center but we annually stripped down and re-urethaned the cultural hall floor in the Golden Toaster. Thanks for the article - really good memories came back readily.

As a USU alumnus (graduated 1991) who attended church in the Golden Toaster, I am curious about the land swap mentioned in the editor's note at the bottom. I knew it was going to happen, but did it ever actually happen? Rumors were that the Golden Toaster was to be torn down, but last time I was in Logan it was (thankfully) still there. Does anyone know its current and future status?

great memories of "linger longers" after church in the Golden Toaster...(and the church meetings, too.)

Though a graduate of BYU, I've often attended various workshops at USU and can relate somewhat to the fondness alumni feel for their college experience at that insitution. (Same goes for U of U). We have excellent opportunities available in our state & Intermountain West for post-high school education. I have children who've attended Ricks/BYU Idaho, Snow College, Dixie College, and I have some limited experiences with Northern Arizona University, Arizona Polytech, and the University of New Mexico--even The University of Iowa, Syracuse University, and Southern Virginia University in the East. One of my dream travels would be to associate for some time with LDS Institutes in these and other areas just to hob-knob a bit, and drink in some of the academic and spiritual experiences available!

The building is still there, but the land swap has taken place. The university is using the building as is temporarily until some point when they will tear it down and build something new. Up north of the Morm dorms where the trailer park used to be, they have constructed one of two new stake centers.

They were going to tear it down. When will they be doing that, will love to watch. Time for it go. And what will they do with the land. Seems like it has been awhile since they announced this in he paper.

While the Church has, in my view wisely, ended having dorms in Logan (there were no good reasons for this in that situation), it does still own apartment buildings adjacent to Michigan State University, in a situation where doing so makes sense.

I always called it the Golden Toaster too. Thanks for sharing the story. Good times. Too bad it's doomed to be demolished. Then again, even the most iconic things fade to time.

City, Ut

I always thought they were mocking it to call it The Golden Toaster.
Nice to learn how the name came about.
