Built in the late 1930s, the building resembled similar tabernacles in the area--one story in height, rectangular in plan, made of wood, and left largely open to the elements. The design included an elevated stage and a gradually rising floor extending away from the stage to enable a better view for the audience. The open feeling was aided by the use of "Howe” trusses in the roof design, which allowed for a 136-foot long uninterrupted space below. This made the Long Tabernacle one of the largest in the region (photo by Dovetail Cultural Resource Group).
