As motorists drive on Interstate 15 toward St. George, they meet the breathtaking sight of the St. George Utah Temple framed by the sandstone buttes characteristic of southern Utah. The temple was dedicated on April 6, 1877, and was the first temple completed in Utah by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The temple serves Church members from southern Utah, eastern Nevada and northern Arizona.
When the temple was constructed, it was on the outskirts of a small, struggling Mormon community. In the nearly 140 years since, St. George has grown dramatically, and today the temple stands in the center of a large and ever-growing city. The six-acre temple site occupies an entire city block just outside historic downtown St. George. A public visitors’ center shares the temple grounds and houses a replica of Bertel Thorvaldsen’s Christus statue. Nearby stand the St. George Tabernacle and the Brigham Young Winter Home, historic buildings that showcase pioneer industry.
