130 years ago today - Dec 18, 1882

[Apostle Wilford Woodruff Journal] We visited the Temple. It was Beautiful. The outside was Painted with sumthing like the Cream Color. It took 15,000 lbs of white Lead to paint it & the Material Cost $2,000. The font was in its place. We decided upon the Plan of the Stands. The Cornish of the main upper room Spans 10 feet.

  2. It appears to be the Logan temple. Woodruff mentions Brigham City and Ogden as cities he visited during this trip.
