Meditation Chapel



Meditation Chapel in Memory Grove Park. This is a WWII memorial.



The inscription over the door reads:




ERECTED TO THE MEMORY OF

LT. ROSS BEASON JR.

AND THOSE OTHER SONS OF UTAH WHO

WITH HIM TROD WARS LAST MILE



There is a plaque on the side of the stairs that reads:



THIS MEDITATION CHAPEL AND AFFURTENANCES IS A GIFT TO THE CITY OF SALT LAKE AND THE PEOPLE OF UTAH BY THE PARENTS OF LT. ROSS BEASON JR. WHO WAS BORN IN SALT LAKE CITY NOVEMBER 15, 1921 AND WHO DIED APRIL 15, 1944 WHEN HIS FIGHTER PLANE CRASHED INTO THE TYRRHENIAN SEA OFF THE ITALIAN COAST.



It is a beautiful little chapel. Around the chapel are markers for all the others who died in WWII. The marble of the chapel is an amazing color that I tried to capture in the picture with a bit of HDR work in photomatix.
