Beyond the CityOahu

Among the many influences that define life in Hawai‘i are the multifaceted enterprises of THE CHURCH OF JESUS CHRIST OF LATTER-DAY SAINTS. In 1865, the church purchased a 6,000-acre plantation on O‘ahu’s North Shore in La‘ie. By 1919, a temple had been constructed at the site, and then came a college, which is now a branch campus of Brigham Young University.

HAWAI‘I TEMPLE VISITORS’ CENTER is a striking structure with an interesting story.
