The Detroit Michigan Temple is located in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan. Ground was broken on October 10, 1998. During the temple open house about 28,000 people toured the temple, seeing the beautiful architecture and furnishings as well as learning about the purpose of LDS temples.
President Gordon B. Hinckley dedicated the Detroit Michigan Temple on October 23, 1999. The Detroit Michigan Temple features a classic modern single spire design constructed with Imperial Danby White marble quarried in Vermont. It has a total floor area of 10,700 square feet (990 m2), two ordinance rooms, and two sealing rooms.
The temple serves church members in the lower peninsula of Michigan, as well as north-west Ohio and the London Ontario Stake, which as well as London includes the border towns of Sarnia and Windsor in Ontario.
The Detroit Michigan Temple is located on the same property as the Bloomfield Hills Michigan Stake Center. The stake center was built in the 1950s under the direction of then-stake president George W. Romney. It was dedicated in 1957 by David O. McKay, who was at the time the President of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
