Vernal Second Ward Chapel
(now Uintah County Golden Age Senior Center)
155 South 100 West
Vernal, Utah 84078-2523
Pope & Burton, 1918
From the Vernal Express, February 22, 1918:
Below is the picture of the new $15,000 chapel to be built by the Vernal Second Ward...
The heating may be steam or hot air, as shall be later decided upon, but the plant will be finished with the building.
The building is now owned by Uintah County, and has been remodeled for its new use as a senior citizens’ center. Although the exterior appears significantly altered, the original four wings are simply covered over, with the original windows, woodwork, hardware and doors painted over on the interior, as can be seen below.
A pair of casement windows and light fixtures have been mounted on display.
The window muntins seem to indicate familiarity with the work of Walter Burley Griffin.
