Since 1879, the Manti Tabernacle has been a landmark in this small Sanpete County town.
"You know you can't drive on Main Street and see this beautiful building without thinking of the pioneers," said Scott Hintze, an stake president for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Manti.
Now, an effort to preserve this edifice is revealing how the pioneers built it.
"It's fun to see how they built it and how well they built it,” Hintze said.
The restoration of the tabernacle began in April and should be finished sometime next summer.
