Who was the Mormon leader during the move to Salt Lake 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 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.
The Mormon Trail ended in Salt Lake City, Utah. Originally, there was nothing at the end but an empty desert valley and a really stinky salty lake, but the pioneers began building a city, so that by the time people stopped traveling the Mormon trail (due to the railroad coming), there was a big thriving city at the end of thet trail.
The Great Salt Lake is a lake - there are no buildings in it, because it's a lake, and people typically don't build buildings underwater. Also, Mormons (members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints) do not build Cathedrals. They have two types of worship buildings - temples and meetinghouses. Maybe you are asking about the Mormon Temple in Salt Lake City. Salt Lake City is named after the Great Salt Lake but…
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 first Mormon Pioneers left Illinois in 1846 and arrived in Salt Lake City in 1847 after wintering over in Nebraska. Mormon converts from all over the world continued to immigrate to Salt Lake City on the Mormon trail until 1869, when the transcontinental railroad was completed. Most converts then made the journey by rail.
The Mormon Trail was traveled by Mormon Pioneers from Illinois to Utah after they had been kicked out of Illinois. It was then traveled by Mormon converts from Europe and Canada as they immigrated to "Zion" (the Mormon settlements in Utah). The trail was mostly discontinued after the railroad reached Salt Lake City.
Of course! In my experience living in the Salt Lake City area for the past 26 years, I would say that approximately 40% of the doctors are practicing members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the "Mormon" church). Of course doctors are not required to reveal their religious beliefs and therefore it is impossible to know which are Mormon unless you ask them.
