If You Think Moving House Is A Problem,

imagine trying to move a Tabernacle that weighs in at 7 million pounds!

but that is what is happening in Provo, Utah, it’s the 112-year-old exterior of the Provo Tabernacle that was severely damaged in a 2010 fire but has since been saved by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints so it can be converted into a temple,

the Provo Tabernacle is a historic treasure for the Church, originally constructed from 1883 to 1898 at a cost of $100,000, it was a community gathering place for meetings and cultural events, hopefully the move will go well for all concerned.
