Description:

Visit the St. George Tabernacle, the "jewel in the desert" and a symbol of the town's pioneer beginnings. While at the tabernacle, you can also hear interesting stories about the tabernacle's glass and why the balcony had to be moved. Tours of this amazing historical masterpiece are free.



The St. George Tabernacle became the town center for more than one reason. For instance, it seats 1,200, so most large gatherings took place there. The tabernacle's tower featured a clock and bell that set time for the town and the surrounding communities. One townsperson said: "It was grand to have a clock. We loved it because it gave us prestige. We went to church on time, came home on time, opened and closed parties on time."

Built under difficult circumstances, the St. George Tabernacle stands as a symbol of pioneer solidarity. In 1993 much of the tabernacle was restored to resemble as closely as possible its original state. Today, the tabernacle is home to church services, weekly music recitals, and the weekly Dixie History and Music Series.
