On a promontory in Omaha, Nebraska, the Winter Quarters Nebraska Temple stands as a monument to the sacrifice of the Mormon pioneers who lived in the area under harsh conditions over 160 years ago. The 104th temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints serves Church members in Iowa, Nebraska, southeastern South Dakota and Kansas.
After abandoning their homes in Nauvoo, Illinois, 19th-century Latter-day Saints began a gradual trek westward to settle the Great Basin. During the winter of 1846–47, 4,000 Latter-day Saints camped on the western side of the Missouri River to wait for better traveling conditions before leaving for the West. In the settlement that became known as Winter Quarters, these pioneers erected temporary log cabins, sod homes and a gristmill to assist them during their stay. They also established trade relationships with the local Omaha Indians and with settlers living in northern Missouri and Iowa.
