A Note from Matt Grow

Managing Director, Church History Department

The year 2022 marked the 175th anniversary of the arrival of the first Latter-day Saint pioneers in the Salt Lake Valley. Few events in our history are more epic or more inspiring. Several Church historic sites tell this amazing story: from Nauvoo, where the Saints began their exodus; to Winter Quarters and Kanesville, where they prepared for the trek; to the Wyoming Mormon Trail Site, where some Saints faced incredible challenges; to Temple Square, where Brigham Young declared soon after his arrival that the Saints would build a temple.

These sites testify that with the help of God, ordinary people can do extraordinary things to establish the kingdom of God on the earth. Thank you for all you do to ensure that these sites will continue to testify for generations to come.
