They called it Zion. Then when they found out, in order for Utah to become a state, that they would have to separate schools, stores, and public places from religion.
The biggest problems the Mormon Pioneers faced when first arriving in what is now Salt Lake City was lack of water and building materials. These problems were soon solved by t…he building of irrigation canals from mountain streams. These canals, many of which are still in use today, carried water to the cities to be used for drinking and irrigating crops. Many pioneers built the first homes from mud-bricks and adobe, as trees were scarce. Logging in the mountains brought some log and lumber structures, although since nails were extremely rare, most of these were tied together with leather straps and cemented with mud. Granite and other stones were used to construct the most permanent buildings, such as the Salt Lake Temple, which is still used today. The pioneers were very organized, hardworking, and industrious. These qualities all contributed to their success in suviving and thriving in Salt Lake City.
Brigham Young was the Prophet of the Church of Jesus Christ of the Later Day Saints by the time the Mormon migration reached Utah. Prior to Brigham Young, Joseph Smith, o…riginator of the LDS led the Mormons until he was killed by a mob in Carthage, Illinois, in 1844. The first group of Mormon Pioneers was lead to the Great Salt Lake by Brigham Young. Later groups were lead by experienced trail guides who had traveled with Brigham Young previously.
Because the prophet of the Mormon church at the time felt that that was where God had led them. Because it was remote and isolated, so they hoped they would be separated and p…rotected from the rest of the US, where they had been the objects of what was later called pogroms.

It took 40 years to build, starting in 1853, finishing and opening to the public in 1893. You can learn more about the Salt Lake Temple by visiting the "Related Link" below.…
Because nobody else wanted to live there. There was very little useable water and even less lumber. The climate was dry, extremely hot in the summer and freezing cold in the w…inter. On top of all that, the lake made it smell horrible! Explorers and Mountain Men of the day claimed that the land was uninhabitable and believed it could never be used to grow crops. They wanted to be free from persecution so they moved to a place that they knew nobody else wanted. When the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (the Mormon religion) settled in Independence Missouri, their numbers started to outnumber non-mormon settlers. The governor of Missouri, Lilburn Boggs ordered an "extermination order" on the Mormons. The Order lead to the Haun's Mill massacre in which 240 men attacked the town. several Mormons who were wounded surrendured but were still shot to death. In the end, at least seventeen Mormons were killed with thirteen more injured. three of the 250 men who attacked were wounded (but not fatally). The Mormons were forced out of Missouri and went to Nauvoo Illinios. Soon, the Mormon population grew to a large number there too. In Nauvoo Illinois, the prophet Joesph Smith was arrested under false accusations and taken to Carthage Jail in Illinois. On June 27, 1844, a mob stormed the jail. Joesph Smith and his brother Hyrum Smith were killed. In October 1844, the town of Warsaw announce a "wolf hunt" (Mormons being the wolves to hunt). The Mormon leaders made a truce and the city of Nauvoo emptied of Mormon in 1446. In 1848, the Mormon temple was destroyed by arsonists. The new Mormon prophet had received revelation that Joesph Smith received from God that showed the valley of Salt Lake. So the Mormons moved West until they reached Salt Lake, although some did go to California.

The Mormon pioneers originally named it Great Salt Lake City, but shortened it to Salt Lake City because the name was so long.
Well, technically, they never found Salt Lake City. They found a large empty valley and built Salt Lake City. They arrived there in July 1847.

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints the "Mormon" church) does not release membership statistics for anything smaller than a state, so we can't know fo sure. Salt L…ake City is actually quite a diverse, liberal city. Having lived here for over 20 years, I would say about 20-30% of people living inside Salt Lake City boundaries are active, practicing Mormons. A larger number were baptized as children but don't practice the religion today. Most Mormons live in the more family-friendly suburbs surrounding the city. The Salt Lake City Metropolitan area (which includes the surrounding suburbs and smaller cities like Provo and Ogden) is about 70% practicing Mormons - some areas have fewer Mormons (20% or so) and others have more (80-90%), depending on the neighborhood.
To be able to practice their religion in peace.
