"The temple’s history goes back nearly one hundred and thirty years. In 1875, two years before Brigham Young’s death, he announced plans to build twin temples in the regional centers of Logan and Manti, Utah. With church architect Truman O. Angell absorbed in the construction of the Salt Lake and St. George Temples, two other people were obviously required to take on the task of designing and supervising the construction of the new temples. The church architect’s son, Truman O. Angell Jr., was assigned to work on the Logan Temple, while his cousin, Brigham Young’s oldest son, Joseph Angell Young, was assigned to work at Manti. However, on a trip to Manti to begin his work, Joseph Young was suddenly taken ill and died. His successor on the project was assistant church architect William H. Folsom, who proved to be a fortuitous choice."
