Paradise » One of the oldest Mormon chapels in Utah will soon be demolished to make way for a new church.

The Herald Journal of Logan reports (http://bit.ly/HKYfyO) the 133-year-old Paradise 2nd and 3rd Ward church in Cache County will be leveled next month.

Church historians say the chapel, located in the heart of Paradise, was completed in 1877 and features limestone walls. The landmark structure has been added onto multiple times over the years.

While there’s no evidence of cracking in the original building’s walls, the chapel is not in compliance with seismic codes and has problems with its roof and foundation.

Church leaders say while some members wanted to save the chapel, most preferred a new church because of the high cost to renovate the existing one.
