Announcement of the Rexburg Idaho Mormon Temple took place on December 20, 2003, by the First Presidency of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. This is the 129th Temple announced by the Mormon Church.

The groundbreaking ceremony (30 July 2005 by John H. Groberg) for the Rexburg Idaho Temple was open to any and all who desired to attend. Over 8,000 people crowded on the field where the temple now stands.

The Rexburg Idaho Temple dedication was delayed one week due to the passing of President Gordon B. Hinckley on Sunday evening, January 27, 2008.

President Thomas S. Monson was installed as the 16th president of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints on Sunday, February 3, 2008—the day originally scheduled for the dedication of the Rexburg Idaho Temple. One week later, he dedicated the temple as one of his first official acts. The dedication began late, as dense fog forced President Monson’s pilot to land in Pocatello, Idaho, where the remaining 80-mile journey to Rexburg was resumed by car (LDSChurchTemples.com).
