Facts

  • This is the world headquarters of the smaller of the two Mormon-rooted denominations, with over 250,000 members in 55 countries.
  • The combined influence of the Church and Mr. Truman resulted in a United Nations Peace Plaza being built across Walnut Street from the world headquarters at the end of WW II.
  • Although a Baptist, President Harry S. Truman used the adjacent 5,800 seat auditorium to sign the historic executive order desegregating the U.S. Armed Forces in 1948.
  • The spire was originally planned to be 360 feet (109.7 m) tall, but was limited due to local height restrictions.
