Salt Lake City Temple
One of the most enduring symbols of the dedication, hard work, and sacrifices made by the early Latter-day Saints is the Salt Lake Temple. It is the centerpiece of Utah's busy and bustling capitol, but the forty-year period of its construction witnessed the development of Utah as a state.
The Salt Lake Temple is oriented towards Jerusalem; Its location marked by Brigham Young on July 28, 1847, just four days after arriving in the Salt Lake Valley. The temple site was dedicated on February 14, 1853 by Heber C. Kimball. Brigham Young laid the cornerstone on April 6 of that same year.
The architect Truman O. Angell originally planned to use sandstone for the foundation. However, during the Utah War, the saints buried the foundation and the Temple square lot was made to look like a plowed field. After the war, the hard work on the temple resumed. When they dug up the dirt they discovered that many of the foundation stones had cracked. The sandstone blocks were replaced. Today the Salt Lake Temple is constructed of granite.
Wilford Woodruff dedicated the temple on April 6, 1893, exactly forty years after the cornerstone was laid.
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
