Statement of Significance (as of designation - January 29, 1964):
Begun in the early 1850s, this complex symbolizes the strong cultural and religious individuality of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (Mormons). The Tabernacle's unsupported domed roof is one of the largest in the world.

The square is in excellent condition and well maintained. The owner conducted an extensive review of the tabernacle's ability to withstand a seismic event; it was determined that the building required seismic retrofitting.

The tabernacle is undergoing a complete rehabilitation, with seismic upgrades to stabilize the walls and interior ceiling. The interior floor is being reconstructed to allow for rooms/mechanical underneath. The exterior will retain its original appearance.
