Brigham City, Utah, USA Temple
Box Elder County, home to Brigham City, Utah, was founded in 1851. Davis Fort or Old Fort as it later became known, was built to protect the settlers. In 1853 Lorenzo Snow and fifty other families were called to settle and strengthen the area. The settlers were delighted to discover that the area was well-adapted to producing fruit and berries. Peach crops became a staple, the annual harvest evolved into an annual celebration known as “Peach Days”, starting in 1904. “Within the temple, homage is given to the importance of peaches within the community. Delicate peach blossoms are expertly portrayed in the temple’s colorful art glass windows. Additional impressions of peach blossom are repeated throughout the temple and are found in the exterior walls, sealing room carpet, bride’s room woven rug, door handles, crown moldings, decorative painting, and furniture details. The upper floors of the temple feature elaborate designs using a technique known as ‘Damask Stenciling.’ Imagery in these patterns depicts peach blossoms and poppies that flourish in the neighboring town of Mantua.”* Very few temples have fruit trees upon the grounds, but the Brigham City temple features peach, apricot, cherry, pear, and apple trees. The Lord carefully preserved this prime spot of ground known as “Sagebrush Hill.” In 1901 an elementary school was built there, a house of learning for thousands of children over the years, including President Boyd K. Packer who grew up in Brigham City and was delighted to dedicate the Brigham City temple on September 23, 2012. He was also in attendance for the groundbreaking, declaring “I am home” as he began his address.* In 2000, the school was demolished and this prime spot of real estate went on the market, almost selling several times over the next nine years, but each time the sale was incomplete, until it was purchased by the Church. The Brigham City temple reminds us that even though we are asked to do hard things, even dangerous things, and scary things in our service to the Lord, that we can find blessings as we obey, even the sweetest of “fruits”.
How Temple Coins are Made
Dave started creating jewelry using metals in 1992, ten years later he had worked with nearly every metal in the jewelry industry! Moving to Thailand, he spent the next nine years perfecting his skills with various metals, 3D models and 3D printers. He dreamed of producing something that would bring delight to purchasers and carry with it positive feelings that would touch the souls of those who owned them. In 2014 he was able to realize his dream. Returning to the US, he uses Lost-wax casting to create a metal master from brass alloy for each temple of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, depicting, in the highest degree of definition possible, a coin with a 3D image of a temple. The reverse of each coin is cast with the words “Stand ye in holy places.”
