The Kirtland Community of Christ congregation met in the temple occasionally by 1874, and regularly by 1886, for worship services, classes, conferences, and business meetings. In addition to serving as a house of worship, the temple has continued to be an important part of the Kirtland community as it hosted temperance lectures, high school baccalaureates, and community Thanksgiving services. Tours of the historic structure began with the founding members in the 1830s and have continued throughout temple history. As visitors increase through the years, Kirtland Temple continues to receive historic and architectural recognition, including designation as a National Historic Landmark.
