AAA Editor Notes
Paris Tabernacle, 109 S. Main St., is a Romanesque-style Mormon place of worship dedicated in 1889. Designed by Brigham Young's son Joseph Don Carlos, this impressive sandstone edifice is considered to be one of the pioneer landmarks of the Intermountain Region. The interior, which can hold 1,500 worshipers, features hardwood floors and pine pews. The distinctive ceiling reflects a style common to sailing ships of the time.
Pioneer artifacts and an early 20th-century pipe organ made by Austin Organs Inc., one of the oldest U.S. organ manufacturers still in operation, are displayed.
Guided tours are available. Time: Allow 30 minutes minimum.
