60 years ago today - Jul 2, 1962

Counselor Hugh B. Brown rededicates portions of the Alberta (Canada) temple. Extensive remodeling of the temple interiors (sometimes involving the structural replacement of everything except the exterior walls and root) is necessary to accommodate the filmed endowment ceremony and to allow a larger number of temple patrons. The rededication ceremonies occur for the Arizona temple (15 Apr. 1975), St. George temple (11 Nov. 1975), Hawaii temple (13 June 1978), Logan temple (13 Mar. 1979), Manti temple (14 June 1985), Alberta temple (again 22 June 1991), London temple (18 Oct. 1992), Swiss temple (23 Oct. 1992). There temples, sometimes for the first time in nearly 100 years, are open to the general public for tours prior to the rededication ceremonies occurring from 1975 onward.
