The Raleigh North Carolina Temple is the 68th operating temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. This is the first temple built in North Carolina. The legacy of the Saints in this state extends back to the days when Jedediah M. Grant (1816-1856) first preached the gospel there in 1838.
