Latter-day Saints strive to be united with each other and with Jesus Christ. Since 1847, Temple Square has been the spiritual center of a global Latter-day Saint community. This artifact exhibit provides understanding of how Latter-day Saints established a community in the Salt Lake Valley.
Some artifacts on display include:
- A cane used by Church President Brigham Young to designate Temple Square as the center of the new community.
- The original base and meridian stone that was placed on the southeast corner of Temple Square and has remained there for over 100 years.
- Adobe brick that was used in the construction of the Temple Square wall.
- A replica of the original Salt Lake Tabernacle pulpit.
- A microphone used to record annual and semiannual general conferences as well as performances by The Tabernacle Choir at Temple Square.
- Temple Square and early Salt Lake City video footage, which includes leaders of the Church and others in the twentieth century.
