The Independence Temple, or Temple Lot was the first temple commanded to be built in this dispensation; however it has yet to be built. The plan to build a temple on this location was first give in a revelation to the Prophet Joseph Smith, Jr. naming the locations as “the place for the City of Zion.”

Today the LDS Church owns a good portion of the property, but part of the property is owned by various churches, including this “temple” owned by the Community of Christ:
