Salt Lake City Temple History:
One of the most familiar religious symbols of the Latter-day Saints, the Salt Lake Temple was built between 1853 and 1893. The forty-year period of its construction witnessed the development of Utah and Mormonism from the bare beginnings of Salt Lake City’s pioneer settlement to the late Victorian era, just before Utah was granted statehood. Truman O. Angell, who was Brigham Young’s brother-in-law, served as Church architect and had charge of the design and construction of the building from its commencement until his death. Among the architects and draftsmen who assisted him were William Ward (1827–1893) and Angell’s son, Truman Jr. (1852–1933). At his death Angell was succeeded as Church architect by his nephew and Brigham Young’s son, Joseph Don Carlos Young (1855–1938). Following the completion of the temple in 1893, the Church Architect’s Office was closed, and Young returned to private practice in Salt Lake City.
OUR COMMITMENT TO BE IN HARMONY WITH THE REVEALED NAME OF THE CHURCH:
On August 16th, 2018 President Russell M. Nelson of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints released the following statement regarding the name of the Church.
“The Lord has impressed upon my mind the importance of the name He has revealed for His Church, even The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. We have work before us to bring ourselves in harmony with His will. “
The Church has since released guidelines stating the use of Mormon or LDS as a substitute for the name of the the church should be avoided, but such use in proper names such as - The Book of Mormon or when used as an adjective in historical expressions such as - The Mormon Trail - Mormon Battalion, should be considered as the correct use.
The Nauvoo Gallery has been working to put our website and our gallery store in Nauvoo, Illinois in harmony with this important revelation. It’s been customary for websites like ours to use terms like LDS Art, LDS Temple Art, LDS pictures or Mormon Art when describing our products for Google and other search engines. Our intention has been to help people find what has been termed as LDS products & LDS Gifts. It took many many months to build and add products to this website using those relevant and popular search terms - please bear with us as it may take a few months still to find each instance where we can better be in harmony with President Nelson’s message. Thank you for your patience and your kindness during this process
