Inscription.  The pioneers built a bowery on Temple Square in single day, three days after their arrival in 1847. Constructed of native timbers and willows, it provided a gathering place for the community.

The bowery was rebuilt several times until it was replaced by the first tabernacle. In the 1860's that tabernacle was replaced by what is known today as the Mormon Tabernacle.

A replica pioneer bowery was built here in 1995, with materials similar to those used on the first bowery of 1847. Just as the pioneers replaced their bowery, the Park's bowery has been replaced with a new pavilion, constructed with the best of modern materials. Now guests can enjoy the Pioneer Pavilion for family reunions, corporate parties, wedding receptions and more.
Erected by This Is The Place Foundation. (Marker Number 7.)
