Salt Lake City is one of the least Mormon and most liberal areas in Utah. The percentage of practicing Mormons within Salt Lake City boundaries is probably near 20-30%, most of these tending to be college students or young professionals who tend to be more liberal in their beliefs than a typical Mormon. There are, however, a very high number of non-practicing Mormons in Salt Lake City. If you include both practicing and non-practicing Mormons, the number is probably closer to 50-60%.

None. There are no 'Mormon' churches in Salt Lake City. Actually there are no 'Mormon' churches on the earth.

The Mormon Trail ended in the Salt Lake Valley in Utah. They built a city, and it later became known as Salt Lake City.

Sometimes they are referred to as "Salt Lakers" but usually they are just called "Residents of Salt Lake City." Sorry to dissapoint.

No, in the actual city of Salt Lake City, about 30% of the population is Mormon, possibly less. Within the state of Utah as a whole, about 60% are Mormon.

Maybe you are thinking of Salt Lake City, Utah. Salt Lake City is the location of the headquarters of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (also called the "Mormon" Church).

The headquarters of the church is in Salt Lake City, in the State of Utah. Though the area was deeded to them by the Governor of the State, Salt Lake City is predominantly Mormon, but others religions are now well established in the city.

The first Mormon pioneers arrived in Salt Lake City in 1847. Groups continued to travel the Mormon Trail to Salt Lake City until the railroad came through in 1869. After that, most traveled by train to get to Salt Lake City. After World War I, Mormon converts were encouraged to stay in their home cities or nations rather than travel to Salt Lake City.

The Mormon pioneers originally named it Great Salt Lake City, but shortened it to Salt Lake City because the name was so long.

Salt Lake City was started by a group of several thousand Mormon Pioneers. The man who directed much of the city planning was Brigham Young, the president of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (commonly called the "Mormon" Church) at the time.

Mormon City is in California, near Stockton. Unless of course you mean Salt Lake City, where the headquarters of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (commonly called the "Mormon" church) is located.

The city was founded in 1847 as Great Salt Lake City by a group of Mormon pioneers led by their prophet, Brigham Young.

Yes. The first group of Mormon pioneers arrived in what is now called "Salt Lake City" in 1847. They established the city and surrounding communities, finally far away from the persecution they had faced in the midwest.

Roughly from Nauvoo, Illinois to Salt Lake City.

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the "Mormon" church) does not release membership statistics for cities, only for states. So we don't know exact the Mormon population of Salt Lake City in 2004, but it was probably around 30-40%. The city itself has quite a low Mormon population compared to the rest of the state.
