St. George Tabernacle
The â€œjewel of the desertâ€ is what the St. George Tabernacle is commonly referred to as located in St. George, Utah. The building, which took 13 years to construct, was officially dedicated in 1867. Thwaites and Reed, the oldest clock makers who also built Big Ben in London, brought the clock from England to build below the tabernacle.
During the restoration process in 1993, all attempts were made to be authentically true to the original design that stands as a symbol of past pioneer days that are pertinent to the foundation of the present day town today. There are several reasons why the St. George Tabernacle still draws crowds. The beautiful building that seats 1,200 is used for church services, music recitals and theater productions. Free public tours offer insight about the limestone and red sandstone used and the difficult craft of hand quarrying done throughout the entire original construction.
Saint George Tabernacle is located at 18 S Main St, St George, UT 84770. Before planning your visit, check local times for recitals, church services and free public tours.
