Construction began in 1887 and the dedication of the completed building occurred on May 5, 1889 where it was reported that the building costs of the tabernacle were $30,000. Then President of the Wasatch Stake, Abram Hatch was superintendent of the building project and Alexander Fortie the architect. The tabernacle is built with red sandstone that was quarried from the Lake Creek area east of Heber. Originally, the tabernacle was heated by four potbelly stoves, one in each corner. Additions were made in 1928 and 1954. In 1980 the tabernacle was sold to Heber City and now functions as a community hall.
