The Baton Rouge Temple Model was another in my more recent 2 stage models. The original was made for Google Earth. If you do not wish to try to locate it on Google Earth, you can find a shortcut here. This is a significantly more detailed model than the one on Google Earth, but as usual it was derived from the earlier model.
