Alrasool Center

For the last decade, this c. 1890 former LDS chapel in Taylorsville has served Utah’s Shia Muslems as a gathering place and worship center. Thanks to grants provided by the Chicago-based Center for Sacred Places, money to comprehensively restore this important building may soon be available. Preservation Utah worked intensely with the Al-rasool Center and with the Taylorsville’s Historic Commission to prepare a grant application that, if accepted by Sacred Places, could open the door to hundreds of thousands of dollars in restoration financing.
