The Salt Lake Assembly Hall is a Victorian Gothic congregation hall. Rough granite walls are laid out in cruciform style making the hall's exterior look like a small gothic cathedral. Twenty-four spires mark the perimeter of the building's footprint and a tower rises from the intersection of the floor plan's apparent crucifix. The cruciform layout is complemented by Stars of David circumscribed high above each entrance. These symbolize an LDS perception that they are a re-gathering of Biblical Tribes of Israel.
However, the deceptively Gothic exterior conceals a more modern interior lacking vaulted ceilings.
Although built of quartz monzonite rock from the same quarry as the Salt Lake City Temple, the Assembly Hall's unhewn exterior looks much different. The stones for the Assembly Hall were not cut as exactingly as the Temple's. This accounts for the building's dark, rough texture and the broader masonry joints between stones.

Assembly Hall reviews
Unique among religious buildings of the 19th century. A marvelous building that compares to the religious centers of the world although not flamboyant. more »
We walked in right before a concert and were graciously allowed to stay and listen. It was a big choir with a few instrumental soloists. more »
There is not any exhibits here, but an amazing historic site to see. The inside of the hall has the state flower all over in many of the woodworking. This hall was used when it was first opened as a church for many years. Missionaries are here to help with guided tours as well. During the Christmas season there is sometimes music performances and other events here.
Fabulous Concert. We're so glad we came. A wonderful place to see different uplifting concerts etc. Well worth the time to come see the variety of talents showcased.
