Rexburg Stake Tabernacle completed in 1912 and designed by Erlandson

Otto Erlandsen (1867–October 11, 1959[1]) was a Swedish-American builder and architect in the Intermountain West in the early-20th century. Erlandson was born in Malmo, Sweden and emigrated to Utah Territory with his parents and siblings in 1870 as converts to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church). He was schooled in Payson and took mechanical drawing classes at Utah State University.

Erlandsen's most notable designs were the Rexburg and Nebo Stake Tabernacles for the LDS Church. The former is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.[2][3] Erlandson resided in a Prairie-style home in Payson that remains a local historic home of architectural importance.
