Do you remember the archaeological excavation of the original Provo tabernacle which is located just north of the current tabernacle?
All that was left of the original tabernacle which was razed in 1919, was the sub-surface foundation walls of the basement. The Church generously donated these foundation rocks to the city and the city has found a home for them in several very appropriate places.
Many of these rocks are now used as landscape rocks in Pioneer Park. If you haven’t been to Pioneer Park lately it’s time to make a trip. The new splash pad, the Farmer’s Market, the foundation rocks and the beautiful trees are all good reasons to stop by and see the new look.0
