On the mountain bench northeast of American Fork, Utah, in the shadows of majestic Mount Timpanogos, stands the Mount Timpanogos Utah Temple. The snowcapped peak for which the temple was named dominates the surrounding landscape. The temple is the 49th operating temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, the ninth built in Utah, and the second built in Utah County, following the Provo Utah Temple, which was dedicated in 1972. The Mount Timpanogos Utah Temple serves Church members living in northern Utah County and Wasatch County.
On October 3, 1992, Gordon B. Hinckley, then a counselor in the Church’s First Presidency, announced plans to build a temple in an area specified only as “Utah County.” It was later determined that the temple would be built on land in American Fork previously used as a welfare farm for the Church. The groundbreaking ceremony and site dedication took place one year later on October 9, 1993.
