The First Presidency of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has released the location of the Charlotte North Carolina Temple. Church President Russell M. Nelson announced the temple less than two months ago during the Church’s April 2023 General Conference.

This house of the Lord will be built on a 5.9-acre site located at 345 Providence Rd. S, in Weddington, North Carolina. Plans call for a single-story temple of approximately 30,000 square feet. More details, including an exterior rendering, will be released later.

Charlotte North Carolina Temple Location

This will be the second temple built in North Carolina, which is located along the mid-Atlantic coast of the eastern United States. The Raleigh North Carolina Temple was dedicated in December 1999 by President Gordon B. Hinckley and rededicated in October 2019 by Elder M. Russell Ballard, Acting President of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles. The first missionary to North Carolina, Jedediah Grant, arrived in 1838, and over the next seven years, he organized seven congregations of more than 200 Latter-day Saints. Despite persecution over the ensuing decades, which led to many Latter-day Saints migrating west, the Church has grown steadily in the state. By 1973, more than 16,000 Latter-day Saints called the state home. Today, about 94,000 Latter-day Saints in more than 180 congregations live in North Carolina.
