Overview

Did You Know that a sister gave birth to a baby during the Salt Lake Temple dedication? Who blessed the baby, and where did this blessing take place? This story is not well known, but it has helped build the unique culture and history of the Latter-day Saints.

Dan Barker Has Compiled hundreds of facts that entertain, inspire, and teach. You will discover the answers to these questions:

All temples have "Holiness to the Lord" inscribed on the front of each edifice. What other object had these same words?

What did the doctor who delivered Joseph Smith say about him years later?

What did Alvah Boggs, the great-grandson of Lilburn W. Boggs (the governor who issued the Extermination Order), say about his grandfather in 1956?

And more!

As Latter-day Saints, we are indeed a peculiar people with an extraordinary history. Use Unique Stories and Facts from LDS History to spice up a family home evening, liven up a talk, or apply finishing touches to a lesson. Increase your faith as you read the unbelievable, the never-before-heard, or the seldom-heard stories from Church history.
