The First Presidency of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has released the site location for the Lone Mountain Nevada Temple, the Church’s second temple in the Las Vegas metro area.
The location and general size descriptions were published Monday, Dec. 12, on ChurchofJesusChrist.org.
Planning and design will continue for the temple, with additional information to be made public later, including exterior renderings and groundbreaking dates.
Lone Mountain Nevada Temple
The Lone Mountain Nevada Temple — planned for three stories and approximately 87,000 square feet — will be built on a 19.8-acre site southwest of Hickam Avenue between North Grand Canyon Drive and Tee Pee Lane in Las Vegas, Nevada. The major cross streets are West Craig Road to the north and West Alexander Road to the south.
President Russell M. Nelson announced the Lone Mountain temple — located in a neighborhood by the same name in northwestern Las Vegas — two months ago in October October 2022 general conference, one of the 18 temple locations he listed in the conference’s Sunday afternoon closing session.
The temple will be the state’s fourth and the city’s second, with the Las Vegas Nevada Temple dedicated and in operation since December 1989. The state’s two other temples are the dedicated and operating Reno Nevada Temple and the under-construction Elko Nevada Temple.
Nevada is home to more than 182,000 Latter-day Saints in over 360 congregations, with the first Church members arriving in the area in 1852.
