Meditation Chapel

375 North Canyon Road, Salt Lake City

Beautiful Meditation Chapel is a space set apart for quiet reflection. Mr. and Mrs. Ross Beason built the chapel in 1948 as a memorial to their son, Ross Beason, Jr., and all other Utahns who died in World War II. The plaza surrounding the chapel contains more than 300 granite markers each representing a Utah serviceman whose remains were not recovered after the war. The pink marble chapel features intricate bronze doors, stunning “acid etched” windows, and a patterned marble floor. Take some time to enjoy the chapel's contemplative atmosphere and lovely setting in Memory Grove Park.  Click here for more information on Memorial House and Memory Grove Park history.
