The Seattle Washington Temple is the 19th operating temple.
Plans to build a Mormon temple in Seattle, Washington were announced on May 27, 1978.
A groundbreaking ceremony and site dedication were held for the Seattle Temple on May 27, 1978. Marion G. Romney presided at the ceremony and dedication
The temple was open to the public for tours October 7- November 8, 1980. Those who took the tours of the 110,000 square foot temple were able to see the four ordinance rooms, twelve sealing rooms, Celestial room, baptistery, as well as learn more about Mormon beliefs associated with the temple.
Spencer W. Kimball, President of the Church at the time, dedicated the Seattle Washington Temple in multiple sessions held during November 17th through the 21st, 1980. The Seattle temple serves members in western Washington and British Columbia.
The Seattle Washington Temple was the first temple built in the Pacific Northwest (and in the state of Washington).

With its completion the Seattle temple became the first of three temples in Washington. The other two are the Spokane Washington Temple (ded. 1999) and the Columbia River Washington Temple (ded. 2001). Located in the city of Bellevue, Washington, it has a modern single-spire design
Spires and Moroni
The Seattle Washington Temple is one of five temples featuring an angel Moroni statue holding the gold plates. (The other four temples are the Los Angeles California Temple, Washington D.C. Temple, Jordan River Utah Temple, and México City México Temple.) It is also one of few temples to have a west-facing Moroni.
Because the Seattle Washington Temple would be situated near the Bellevue Airfield, the proposed height of the spire was reduced, and a red strobe warning light was installed at the base of the angel Moroni statue. But when the airfield closed in 1983 the light was shut off. Later in 2009 it was removed completely.
