LATEST NEWS & EVENTS

Cladding to Begin on Front Side of Richmond Virginia Temple

The main body of the Richmond Virginia Temple has been clad on three sides, leaving the front, parapets, and steeple to be completed. The temple design was inspired by American Federal architecture, which flourished in the newly founded United States from roughly 1780 to 1840. Richmond became the state capital of Virginia in 1780 under the governorship of Thomas Jefferson, who later become the third president of the United States.

Work Underway on All Levels of the Orem Utah Temple

Construction is progressing steadily on every level of the Orem Utah Temple. On the main level, granite cladding is proceeding at the north end where the first temporary windows have been installed. On the second and third levels, sheathing is being fastened to steel studs and covered in a white sealer. At the steeple level, welders are attached steel cleats, which will be used to anchor the light-gauge framing for the exterior walls.

Reflecting on the Yigo Guam Temple

The beautifully lit exterior of the Yigo Guam Temple reflects in a detention pond located at the southeast corner of the grounds. Just north of the pond is a recently installed flag pole in one of the garden spaces. President and Sister Lopez, the first president and matron of the temple, were welcomed to the island this month to begin their duties. Members are still eagerly awaiting an announcement of the open house and dedication dates.

Landscaping the Saratoga Springs Utah Temple Grounds

Hardscaping and softscaping is progressing each day at the grounds of the Saratoga Springs Utah Temple. On the west side, concrete structures have been installed for planters and a water feature in front of the entrance. Sod has been laid around the meetinghouse and for the west lawn near the driveway entrance. The south parking lot has been paved, and trees and shrubs continue to be planted in the parking lot islands.
