“Tennessee Temple Announced,” Ensign, Feb. 1995, 80
The First Presidency has announced plans to build a temple in the Nashville, Tennessee, area of southeastern United States. In a letter to stake presidents in the Nashville area, the First Presidency said the temple will be completed “following the appropriate land acquisition and construction timetables.”
There are forty-six temples now in operation. The one in Nashville will be the seventh temple in the United States east of the Mississippi River. Other temples east of the Mississippi are in Atlanta, Georgia; Washington, D.C.; Chicago, Illinois; and Orlando, Florida. A temple is under construction in St. Louis, Missouri, and another is planned for Hartford, Connecticut.
