In 1994, The Wellsville Foundation Inc., a 501(c)3 Utah non-profit organization, was formed by a group of committed citizens to SAVE THE TABERNACLE!  In the heart of Wellsville, Utah, the beautiful Wellsville Tabernacle is actively being renovated with plans to re-open the site as the Wellsville Community Center for Arts, Education, and Entertainment. The Board of Directors meets twice a month.  For more information, contact Kaylene Ames at (435) 245-6950 or message us at
