In 1847, a large group of Mormon Pioneers travelled from their winter quarters in Nebraska to Salt Lake City Utah. Please note this was not ALL the Mormons, but the majority of the leadership and a large group of those living in the United States at the time.

You are probably thinking of Salt Lake City, Utah. The headquarters of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the "Mormon" church) has been located in Salt Lake City since 1847. However, there is no city where most Mormons live. There are 14.5 million Mormons scattered around the globe, with about 35-40% of Mormons living in the United States and about 10% of Mormons living in the state of Utah. Only about 0.4% of Mormons live in Salt Lake City boundaries.
