Message from the designer: The Ogden Utah Temple (formerly the Ogden Temple) is the sixteenth constructed and fourteenth operating temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church). Located in Ogden, Utah, it was originally built with a modern, single-spire design very similar to the Provo Utah Temple. During a renovation completed in 2014, the exterior and interior were extensively changed.
The temples in Ogden and Provo were planned due to overcrowding in the Salt Lake, Manti, and Logan temples. The Ogden Temple serves more than 135,000 members. The intention to construct a temple in Ogden was announced by the LDS Church on August 24, 1967. On September 7, 1970, a cornerstone laying ceremony was held. The site for the temple is a 10-acre (40,000 m2) lot called Tabernacle Square that the church had owned since the area was settled. In 1921, LDS Church president Heber J. Grant inspected the site as a possible temple site, but decided the time was not right to build.
At the time of construction, the Ogden Temple differed from temples built previously by the LDS Church. The original design was very contemporary and the lot chosen is in downtown Ogden, surrounded by businesses and offices. The temple in Ogden was the first built in Utah since the Salt Lake Temple was dedicated in 1893 and since Utah gained statehood in 1896.
The Ogden Temple was originally constructed with 115,000 square feet (10,700 m2) and four floors, one below ground. The temple included six ordinance rooms and eleven sealing rooms. The stone on the temple was fluted and decorative metal grillwork was added between the stone. Gold windows with directional glass also added to the beauty of the temple.
The Ogden Temple was dedicated on January 18, 1972, by church president Joseph Fielding Smith, a few weeks before the Provo Temple was dedicated.
