Long Description:
The plaque says, "The Assembly Hall, constructed of granite stone left over from the building of the temple, was completed in 1880. It is a place of public worship, in which visitors are welcome. Although the building is used mainly for conferences of the Latter-day Saints congregations located in Salt Lake City and for other Church meetings, it is also available for various cultural and civic functions. The Gothic Revival structures is 68 feet wide and 120 feet long and the center tower is 130 feet high. The auditorium holds almost 2,000 people, which choir seats for 100. The truncated spires were originally chimneys."

Taken from the guidebook, "J. The ASSEMBLY HALL (open when accompanied by guide), in the southwest corner of the square, is a rough gray granite structure with white wooden spires thrusting above its gray slate roof; the auditorium seats 2,000. Services held in this building, in contrast to those in the inviolable Temple, are open to the public. it is, from time to Tim, devoted to social and intellectual as well as religious uses, and under weekday noon hours it serves as a free nursery for children under twelve while their parents are attending Tabernacle organ recitals." -- Utah: A Guide to the State
