The Washington DC Temple of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints

Designed by architect Keith W. Wilcox (1921-2011)Morman.jpg,who was active in the church, it was dedicated in 1974.  Prior to dedication, fellow National Register of  Historic Places historian W. Ray Luce got tickets for his interested colleagues, as non-believers can not enter the Temple after it is sanctified.  The tour was illuminating.

The Temple sits in Kensington,MD, near the beltway around Washington,DC and is highly visible to people driving that highway.
