Mormon Square, Salt Lake City Photos

Mormon Square in Salt Lake City is the religious center of the Church of Latter Day Saints religion. The square now grown to several square blocks hosts the main temple, a tabernacle used for concerts, an assembly hall, a conference center, a museum, a genealogy library, a former heritage hotel now converted, administration buildings, and several visitor centers. It is also the site of Beehive House (1853-5) built by Brigham Young as his home & office from which he governed Utah plus the next-door Lion House (1854-6) also built by Brigham Young for his wives & children.
