On July 24, 1847 Brigham Young looked down into a great salt lake valley and declared, "This is the right place." By sheer will and their strong faith in God, they Mormon poineers had to endure the hardship of the isolated and arid spot to make it what it is today, Salt Lake City.
They fought hard to irrigate the desert to grow enough food for themselves. The square consist of the Temple which took 40 years to complete. The Tabernancle that seats 6,500 and it's domed roof is the largest in the world. There are two vistor center that display religious and historical aspects of Mormon life, a beautiful assembly hall used for large gatherings, and the Log Cabin, the oldest house in Salt Lake City.
