Located in Dallas, Texas, the temple was dedicated on October 19, 1984 by Gordon B. Hinckley. The temple sits on a 6-acre (24,000 m2) site and was originally 18,000 square feet (1,700 m2). It was the first temple in Texas and the South Central United States. With the LDS Church growing rapidly in the area, the temple was remodeled in 1987 to increase its size and make it more functional and efficient. The addition gave the temple 22,749 square feet (2,113 m2) of added space. The Dallas Texas Temple currently has a total floor area of 46,956 square feet (4,362 m2), five ordinance rooms, and four sealing rooms.
