SALT LAKE CITY — The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints announced the location for two U.S. temples, as well as a groundbreaking date for the Heber Valley Utah Temple.

Heber Valley Utah Temple

A groundbreaking ceremony for the Heber Valley Utah Temple will be held Saturday, Oct. 8.

Elder Kevin R. Duncan, Temple Department executive director, will preside over the event, according to Church officials.

The temple — which was announced by Church President Russell M. Nelson during the October 2021 General Conference — will be built on a 17.9-acre site located southeast of 1400 East Center Street in Heber City, Utah.
