Construction of the New North Ward L.D.S. Church 1952 ~ from the Elva Guyman Collection

The cornerstone of this new meeting house is dated 1952. the year construction of the new building was started. Dedication was June 24, 1956
Look to the far right of the photo. Social Hall is still standing.

The building could not be dedicated until it was payed for.  The new church was completely built in 1954.  It was dedicated in 1956.  Many banquets were held to raise money to pay for the building.  Those that remember say, "We ate our way into the new North Ward Church".
