Ghosts of West Temple

On the spot where thousands of people explore their family history, another story waits to be told….

ghosts of west temple

West Temple street now contains the Family History Library, the LDS Church History Museum, and several parking lots, but it was once home to some of the most prominent families of Utah.  The houses are long gone and the families have moved, but their stories and images remain.  This interactive exhibit seeks to provide a brief peek of the buildings and some of the families that once called West Temple their home.  We invite you to travel back in time with us! 

This exhibit is in celebration of Utah Archives Month.  Check out other activities highlighting the collections of archives and special collections across Utah.

    I found the interactive tour fascinating. Was interesting how you tied the location, with history and pictures, thanks. Would be awesome to see the same done for historic South Temple!

    Love it! The map interface is very interesting to use since I’m familiar with the current street, so I can follow it back in time. Thank you!
