Mormon leaders suggested a state named Deseret that would cut into large portions of all the states that surround Utah.

Brigham Young proposed a state called "Deseret", which included all of Utah and parts of Wyoming, Idaho, Nevada, and Arizona. He often refered to the area as Deseret or Zion.

The state of Deseret is associated with Salt Lake City, Utah. In 1849, Mormons proposed the state of Deseret but, it was never officially recognized by the U.S. government.

Deseret from the Book of Mormon meaning honeybee.

Deseret was a US territory, and it began to be settled July 24, 1847. As the states within the territory (Idaho, Utah, Arizona, and parts of other present-day states) obtained statehood, the name Deseret ceased to be officially recognized.

The word 'Deseret' is defined by the Book of Mormon as honeybee. (See Ether 2:3) Deseret was the name of a territory or state proposed by the Mormon pioneers, which covered parts of modern day Utah, Idaho, Wyoming, Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona, Nevada, and California. In pioneer times, the word Deseret was almost used synonymously with the word Zion - it was the home of the Saints. Deseret was also used to name things of Mormon origin, such as the Deseret Alphabet or the Deseret News. Today, Deseret is still used in the names of companies or organizations affiliated with the Mormon Church, including Deseret Book, Deseret Industries, Deseret News, and Deseret Transportation.

The Mormons called the area Deseret. They proposed the State of Deseret, which actually covered much of Idaho, Wyoming, Nevada, and Arizona as well.

The proposed state of Deseret was able to flourish because they were organized, industrious, and had the resources and population to maintain the vast area. The proposed state was later broken up and made into many states, each of which still flourishes in the present-day United States.

The state of Deseret, proposed by Mormon pioneers, covered much the area that is now Utah, Idaho, Wyoming, Colorado, Nevada, and Arizona.

There is no state of Deseret. The state was proposed in 1849, and provisional for about two years, but never recognized by the United States. The proposed state encompassed almost all of Nevada and Utah, more than half of Arizona, and parts of California, Oregon, Idaho, Wyoming, and New Mexico.

The word Deseret is found in the Book of Mormon and supposedly means Honeybee. Early Mormons adopted this word and the symbol of the beehive to represent their industriousness - they were busy, hardworking, and highly organized, just like bees.The Deseret title can still be found on many things related to or owned by the church such as Deseret News (a Mormon-owned newspaper), Deseret Industries (a Mormon owned thrift store), and Deseret Book (a Mormon book store).

"Mormons" are not a state, they are a religion. The Mormons have never been granted statehood, and doing so now would be near impossible as Mormons are scattered all over the globe and come from many different nations.The Mormons did once apply for statehood with the state of Deseret, a large area that covered much of what is now Utah, Idaho, Wyoming, Colorado, Arizona, and Nevada. This was not granted by the federal government, who instead drew the state borders we have today. Mormons are credited with postponing Utah's statehood with their practice of polygamy. Mormons abandoned polygamy in 1890, and Utah was finally granted statehood in 1896.

No. Deseret Industries is closed on Memorial Day and other government holidays.
