The Logan temple is one of the oldest temples in Utah. Its historical architecture and color also make it one of the most popular. Today we want to share a few things you maybe didn't know about the Logan Temple. And why it's no surprise that our artists and photographers make it the subject of some of their best work.

The first and last temple dedicated by President John Taylor.


The Logan Temple was dedicated on May 17, 1884, just three years before President Taylor passed away.  

The second temple to be constructed in Utah, the first being the St. George Temple.

The first temple constructed with multiple rooms for the endowment ceremony.  

Originally painted a pinkish-white to hide the brown-colored stone. However, Church and temple leaders eventually allowed the paint to wear off.


The darker color of the limestone has become one of the most recognizable aspects of the Logan Temple.

Logan Temple Dedicatory Promises


The Logan Temple had some unique promises included in the dedicatory prayer. Promises that make the Logan Temple a true house of learning. 


For example, the blessings of learning go beyond what we might typically think of when we envision attending the temple, including, “the instruction of Thy people in all principles of science and intelligence pertaining to this life, and the lives that are to come.” It also references God’s command to “become acquainted with all good books, and with languages, tongues and people.”

As one of the earlier temples, Logan temple dedicatory prayer also includes many references to the events of the Restoration.


It mentions Christ’s appearance to Joseph Smith and Oliver Cowdery in the Ohio temple, the construction of the Nauvoo temple, and the restoration of many priesthood ordinances.


However, this prayer is not just for the temple and those who enter. It is also a petition to God to protect the United States and its citizens living well outside Logan Utah.

Not all areas of the world or even states in the U.S. have seasons as clearly defined as Utah. The variety throughout the year makes for some beautiful Logan Temple pictures, more particularly through the eyes of an artist or photographer.
