Members of at least 114 religious faiths visited Temple Square during the first three months of 1991.
"Not all visitors sign guest registers, but of those who do sign and who record their religion preference, we counted 114 different faiths," said Robert B. Harbertson, director of the state's most popular tourist attraction.Specific religions listed most frequently, in order, were Catholic, Lutheran, Methodist, Baptist, Presbyterian, Episcopal, Jewish and United Church of Christ. In addition, many visitors simply wrote "Christian" or "Protestant."
Nearly 480,000 visitors came to the square during the first three months of 1991, which reflected an increase of nearly 8 percent over the same period in 1990.
"We are pleased to have (visitors) come and get acquainted with our people, learn of Temple Square's historical significance and experience the peaceful feeling that exists here," Harbertson said.
