SALT LAKE CITY — The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has announced the location of its planned temple in Bentonville, Arkansas.

The church plans to build the temple on an 8.8-acre site at 1101 McCollum Rd. The Bentonville Arkansas Temple will share the site with an existing church meetinghouse.

The temple's plans call for a single-story building of about 25,000 square feet and a center spire, a news release from the Latter-day Saint church said.

Latter-day Saint Church President Russell M. Nelson first announced the church's decision to construct a temple in Bentonville in October 2019.
