The Cody Wyoming Temple was among the temples announced by President Russell M. Nelson on October 3, 2021, at the October general conference. It will be the third temple in Wyoming, the two others are the Star Valley Wyoming Temple (dedicated in 2016) and the Casper Wyoming Temple (under construction).

Cody is located in the northwestern corner of Wyoming near the border of Montana. Approximately one-ninth of the population of Wyoming (or 68,000 people) claim membership in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Pioneers famously traveled across the state in their westward migration to Utah, primarily from the 1840s to the 1860s.[1]

Cody is home to the Historic Cody Mural and Museum—a meetinghouse of the Church that features a large domed ceiling with a rich-colored mural depicting scenes from Church history including the Restoration and the westward expansion of the pioneers. The chapel and visitors' center are open to the public during the summer months.[2]

Location

The Cody Wyoming Temple is currently in the planning stages. No location has been announced by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
