For members of the Mormon Church in eastern and central Idaho, the Idaho Falls Idaho Temple offers tranquility and an opportunity to draw closer to God. The Church’s eighth operating temple stands in a beautiful spot overlooking the Snake River, adding to the peaceful atmosphere people feel when they visit.
In 1937, Church leaders announced plans to build a temple in Idaho Falls — the first temple to be built in Idaho — and in 1939 they broke ground. Two years later, the majestic white cast stone exterior stood completed. However, the outbreak of World War II and resulting supply shortages slowed progress on construction of the interior. On September 23, 1945, eight years after the temple’s announcement and a month after Japan’s surrender ended the war, Church President George Albert Smith dedicated the 92,177-square-foot building.
