Brigham Young selected this location on July 28, 1847 for the future location of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints temple. Six years later on April 6th, the cornerstone of the Salt Lake Temple was laid and construction began on a design by Truman O. Angell (architect and brother-in-law of Brigham Young). Forty years later, to the day, of the cornerstone being laid, on April 6, 1893, the temple was completed and dedicated. It was the 6th temple completed by the church.
During your visit to Salt Lake City you can walk the temple square, view Angel Moroni blowing his trumpet to the east, or with special invitation enter the temple.
This ¾" thick wooden replica is handcrafted in the U.S. to reflect its historical features. It can set neatly on a shelf, wainscoting, or window/door trim to remind you of a special place you've visited or dream of visiting someday. A short description is written on the back. Look for Casper, our black cat mascot, taking up residence within the design. This is the sign of an authentic Cat’s Meow!
