185 years ago today - Aug 5, 1837

At a meeting of Church presidents in Missouri, high council, bishopric, and elders it is resolved to build "a house unto the name of the Lord ... moderately ... as we have means;" also, in a departure from the Kirtland model, it is resolved "that the building Committee of the house of the Lord have no store connected with the building the house But that every firm or individual that embarks in that business--have, own and claim such property as their own private individual property and stewardship."
