What’s Hiding in the Attic of the Salt Lake Tabernacle?

The Salt Lake Tabernacle is a landmark not only in Mormon culture, but around the world. If you’ve ever wondered what’s inside the unusual shaped attic, this video has all the answers. The Mormon Tabernacle Choir released a video on their YouTube channel of a virtual tour of the attic, which includes captions that provide details into the construction of the Tabernacle which is almost 150 years old. Once you see it, you’ll be begging for a ticket to get into the attic – it’s incredible!



What is the Mormon Tabernacle Choir?

Thank you for the tour of the Tabernacle in Salt Lake City, Utah with the Tabernacle Choir singing "Come, Come Ye Saints" in the background. The summer of 1964, I had the job of creating and hosting a half hour radio program which was syndicated around the country to several hundred radio stations by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. One of my programs took me on a tour of the attic of the Tabernacle. Very similar to the video you have just seen, except for the fact I carried a tape recorder through out my visit so I could record and describe the details of the unique parts of the tour: the long stair case, the multiple heavy wooden boards tied together with strips of rawhide and with wooden pegs. It was plain to see that a hundred years ago construction methods were completely different from our modern ones. Of course, I also mentioned how more modern methods had been used to update that wonderful old building.
