Thomas S. Monson, of the church's First Presidency, dedicated the Louisville Kentucky Temple on March 19, 2000. The dedication was held after a weeklong public open house.
The Louisville Kentucky Temple has the same design as other small temples built during the same time. The exterior is made of white marble quarried in Vermont and has a single-spire topped with a gold statue of the angel Moroni. It has a total floor area of 10,700 square feet (990 m2), two ordinance rooms, and two sealing rooms.
