A large building used for church meetings. Typically, it refers to buildings built by the early pioneers as the center piece of a town. Most major Mormon pioneer towns have a tabernacle in their downtown area. Due to popularity, the Salt Lake Tabernacle is often referred to as simple "The Tabernacle" and is often the location where the the Mormon Tabernacle Choir performs and rehearses. Other tabernacles have seen their purposes change. The Vernal Tabernacle was converted to the Vernal Utah Temple, for example.
