The climate in Brigham City is similar to that of its namesake city, Salt Lake City, Utah. The influx of settlers transformed the small settlement into a sizeable town, renamed Brigham City in his honor. In 1855, Brigham Young, the LDS church president after whom the settlement is named, surveyed the town slabs and encouraged people to build permanent houses, renaming the settlement. His son, President Joseph Smith, conferred on him the title of President of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS) in 1856.
Summer is hot, winters are cold but rarely cold, and snow is heavy, while temperatures are cool overnight. Humidity remains low, so it is often possible to receive lake effect snow in the winter months, especially in the spring and summer months.
The county town of Box Elder County is the second largest county in the state of Utah after Salt Lake City. To the west is the Bear River Migratory Bird Refuge, which is located at the mouth of the Bear River, and to the east is a large flat region of desert scrubland that eventually merges into marshland on the edge of Great Salt Lake.

The building's landscape design has been designed to reflect the classic designs of the Logan, Manti and Salt Lake Temples. The warm white temple faces east toward the historic tabernacle of Brigham City, with precast concrete and limestone, with the upper angel Moroni reaching several feet higher than the top of the tabernacle. The design shows that the previous temple was built on the site of an old church building, not a new one. Brigham has a museum that covers the history of its history and its relationship with the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
I see in my mind's eye the temple that will be here in about two years, "he continued.

Brigham Young directed Mr. Snow to bring additional settlers to the site and promote a self-sufficient city on it, and he was instructed by Brigham Young to make Brigham City the capital of his new settlement. Snow recognized the importance of making the city a cooperative community, similar to that of Salt Lake City. There, they would organize a system of cooperative living in which people produce everything they consume. In the mid-1870s, the Cooperative Association produced all the goods necessary for the preservation of the community. The first public peach farm in the United States and the first peach production in Utah was founded in 1855 by William Wrighton when he went to Salt Lake City, bought 100 peach stones for $1 each and planted them in Brigham.
