Utah Religious Architecture Photograph Collection

The Utah Religious Architecture Photograph Collection displays the history and variety of religious communities in Utah through images of existing and historical houses of worship. While exterior views are predominant, available interior shots are also welcome if they respect the traditions and feelings of the faith community. A feature of this collection is to highlight how buildings are repurposed. Some church buildings are used by different traditions over time, others are now used for secular purposes, and still others were built for secular purposes and are now occupied by religious communities. To submit digital photographs for possible inclusion in this project, please complete the following form. The Marriott Library reserves the right to use only a selection of the photos submitted.
