St. George Utah Temple, From East
Image by Altus Photo Design
A temple for St. George was announced on November 9, 1871 by Brigham Young and was dedicated on April 6, 1877. Even though the Salt Lake City Temple had been announced years earlier in 1847, construction would continue until 1893. The St. George Temple was built to satisfy the church’s immediate need for an appropriate place for temple ceremonies and ordinances. Because of the pressing need, the building’s groundbreaking ceremony was held on the day the temple was announced. It was the third to be completed by the church and the first one in Utah.
