The 50th Mormon temple to be built in the US is located in the town of Town and Country in West St. Louis County. It sits beside interstate 64 west of the city. Construction started in 1093 and it was completed in 1997. After completion the temple was open for tours for four weeks then closed to members only.
During the four-week public open house of the St. Louis Missouri Temple, nearly 260,000 visitors toured the building with 11,518 on the first day alone. Demand for the free tickets was so high that tours were conducted on two of the four Sundays, though it was originally planned that no tours would be held on Sundays.
