Temple Locale Overlooking Lake Natoma, the Sacramento California Temple shares a large parcel of land with the "Mormon Center," a meetinghouse in the Folsom California Stake. Located off Highway 50 in Rancho Cordova, 20 miles east of Sacramento, the site was once owned by Aerojet General Corp. for use as a recreational center. During a large downsize of the company in 1971, the Church acquired the 47 acres where a chapel was built onto the existing gym and other areas converted to classrooms. It provides for numerous church activities including sand volleyball, picnics, camping, and ward group activities. The beautiful piece of property is on a hill overlooking the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. The majestic oak trees surrounding the site create a serene natural setting. Temple Facts The Sacramento California Temple was the seventh temple built in California, the third built in Northern California, and the second built in the Central Valley, following the Fresno California Temple (2000). The Sacramento California Temple was originally planned as a larger (approximately 50,000-square-foot) building similar to the St. Louis Missouri Temple, but plans were modified to follow an adaptation of the design used for the Redlands California Temple and Newport Beach California Temple. The public open house of the Sacramento California Temple was attended by 168,367 visitors.//www.ldschurchtemples.com
