Kanesville Tabernacle

In the Kanesville Tabernacle, built by 200 pioneers in just two and a half weeks, Brigham Young was sustained as the second prophet and president of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The present log tabernacle is a replica of the original meeting hall. The tabernacle now serves as a visitors' center, where you can learn more about the epic history of the Latter-day Saints' migration westward. Also see the Mormon Trail Center at Historic Winter Quarters.
