The building subsequently known as the Old Tabernacle, which had been erected and just completed on the southwest corner of the Temple Block, in G.S.L. City, was dedicated. This structure, built of adobe, was 126 feet long, 64 feet wide and arched without a pillar. It was capable of seating about twenty-five hundred people. The ground is now occupied by the Assembly Hall.
