Brigham City Utah Temple is a temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church) in Brigham City, Utah. The temple was announced by church president Thomas S. Monson on October 3, 2009, during the church's general conference. The temple was announced concurrently with those to be constructed in [3 ] Concepción, Chile, Fort Lauderdale, Florida, Fortaleza, Brazil and Sapporo, Japan; at the time, the announcement brought the total number of temples worldwide to 151 (including those under construction and announced). It is the fourteenth temple of the LDS Church completed in Utah.
The temple is located on the property where the Central Elementary School once stood at 250 South Main Street in Brigham City, across from the historic
tabernacle. [4 ]
A groundbreaking ceremony was held on July 31, 2010, and was conducted by
Boyd K. Packer, president of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles and a native of Brigham City. [5 ]
On the morning of June 28, 2011, the western spire was installed. The
angel Moroni statue was installed on the eastern tower on July 12, 2011. The installation was delayed for almost two hours due to weather problems. [6 ]
A public open house was held from 18 August through 15 September, 2012, excluding Sundays and Saturdays. The temple was formally dedicated in three sessions on September 23, 2012, by Packer. The dedicatory sessions were broadcast to congregations of the church within Utah. In conjunction with the dedication of the temple, there was a cultural celebration featuring music and dance on September 22.
