“There’s a shortage of non-cookie-cutter LDS chapels in this world. It would be a pity to damage this one.”
The LDS Church and Utah State University agreed to swap some real estate a couple of days ago. While it may not be as familiar to many Mormons as the Salt Lake Tabernacle, the “Golden Toaster” chapel has been a part of LDS student life at Utah State University for generations. Even for non-LDS students and residents, the building has been nothing less than an iconic structure on the eastern edge of USU’s campus near the mouth of Logan Canyon, serving as both a useful marker in giving directions, and as the most accessible free parking on that side of campus. According to the parties involved, the Golden Toaster will be razed to make way for a new university building.
For those who are unfamiliar with the building, I encourage to you check out an excellent series of photographs of this beloved chapel at LDS Architecture (and check out the other entries at that fantastic site, too!). Although I recognize that this is of minor interest to many of this community, I wanted to at least note the passing of this great building and provide a forum for people who attended meetings there to say farewell.
 Thanks to Spencer in the comments section for reminding me of the other common uses for the building!
 The piece of land the Church has apparently received in return is a portion of the now-defunct “USU Trailer Court” where my wife and I spent the first 4 years of our married life. *sniff*
