History

Announcement

The announcement of a temple in Redlands, California on April 21, 2001 was greatly welcomed by the many members of the area. Redlands is in the San Bernardino California area, an area which since 1851, has had a large population of Mormons some of whom are descendants of colonists that first established the community.

Groundbreaking

The site for the Redlands California Temple was dedicated  and the ground was broken 1 December 2001 by Elder Dieter F. Uchtdorf and construction began soon after.

Open House

From August 9th through September 6th 2003 an open house was held for the Redlands Temple. About 11,000 people volunteered to help with the open house and more than 140,000 people were able to tour the temple and learn more about the purpose of Mormon temples.

Cultural Celebration

 

Dedication

Church President Gordon B. Hinckley dedicated the Redlands California Temple on 14 September 2003. Thousands of members attended the four dedication services. In the dedicatory prayer President Hinckley stated, “This beautiful structure has come of the consecrations of Thy Saints in all the world. Bless them for their faith and faithfulness. Open the windows of heaven, as Thou hast promised through the prophet Malachi, and pour down blessings upon them that there shall not be room enough to receive them.”[1]

President Name and referece timeframe

Redlands is in the San Bernardino, California area, an area which since 1851 has had a large population of Mormons, some of whom are descendants of colonists that first established the community. The original community was established at the behest of Brigham Young but the settlers were called back to Utah for safety purposes in 1857.

Mormon members helped in the construction by donating rocks for its building, some of these rocks were from the area where the original colonists of 1851 camped. Young children also donated their pennies to buy the palm trees that are now planted around the temple. The temple sits on 4.6 acres and is 17,300 square feet. It houses two ordinance rooms and three sealing rooms. The temple was built on a lot that originally was home to an orange grove; during the open house visitors were served orange juice made from the trees that once stood there. It serves approximately 70,000 Mormon members in the area.
