TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — A groundbreaking ceremony was held for the Tallahassee Florida Temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Although attendance was limited Saturday due to COVID-19 restrictions, officials said people were able to view the groundbreaking ceremony via live stream.

Church President Russell M. Nelson announced plans to build the Tallahassee Florida Temple in the April 2020 General Conference.

Officials said the single-story temple will be constructed on a 4.97-acre site adjacent to a Church meetinghouse off Thomasville Road (2440 Papillion Way) in northeast Tallahassee.

The building was estimated at approximately 29,000 square feet.

It will be the third temple in Florida, joining the Orlando Florida and Fort Lauderdale Florida temples.
