 Utah Travel Center The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints

Salt Lake City Temple
In 1847, Brigham Young and the first party of Mormon emigrants reached the Salt Lake Valley. The story of the Mormon exodus from the Midwest to Salt Lake has become well known, but for most tourists questions still remain about Mormon culture, and about the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, as the Christian religion is officially known. Some visitors take note of the lasting impression made by the "second wave" of Mormons; hundreds of Europeans who concerted to the religion in the mid-1800s, and left their home countries to travel to Utah. Following the routes of earlier explorers, Mormon pioneers formed the settlement and transportation patterns of the state. Differences in Ancestry and economic status marked the architectural and agricultural styles in various areas.

For all Utahns, members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints or not, Mormonism is a unique heritage which has shaped the past, and continues to impact the state's future. On the brink of the 21st century, approximately 70 percent of Utah's residents are members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Mormonism today is a part of everyday life throughout the world, but because of the concentration of Mormons in Utah, Mormon culture distinguishes the area. Many Utahns help shape public issues in accordance with standards and ideas of their spiritual beliefs. The result is a modern forward-thinking state, known for citizens who believe in community and family values, volunteerism, and civic pride.
