The Brigham City Utah Temple was completed in 2012, and is the 139th temple built by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church). Located in the city of Brigham, Utah, it was the 14th temple built in Utah.

Temple History

On October 26, 2009, Church officials announced that the Brigham City Utah Temple would be constructed on a downtown block on M]]ain Street known as Central Square, located directly west of the Brigham City Tabernacle. Speculation of this location began shortly after the announcement of the temple when a sign was posted on the site indicating that sale of all seven commercial lots on the block were pending. Central Elementary School once stood on the site, but it was razed several years ago in a downtown redevelopment effort. President Boyd K. Packer had attended school there as a boy.[1]


Groundbreaking Ceremony

"I am home," said President Boyd K. Packer in his opening remarks at the Brigham City Utah Temple groundbreaking held Saturday, July 31, 2010. President Packer, president of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, and his wife Donna are natives of Brigham City. President Packer had attended elementary school 80 years before on the very site where he stood. He continued, "I can see in my mind's eye a temple sitting here in about two years time. It will be gorgeous, it will be white. You will see in the design of it reflections of previous temples that have been built, particularly the Salt Lake Temple. It will be a beacon from all over the valley." [2]
