(With the help of the 1st Counselor in the Stake Presidency who referred us to D & C 57.)
First, note that it is the Kansas City, Missouri temple...
Second, note the proximity of the temple site to Independence, Missouri... (click on the map to enlarge it)
Third, let me quote directly from D & C 57: "Wherefore, this is the land of promise, and the place for the city of Zion." "And thus saith the Lord your God, if you will receive wisdom here is wisdom. Behold, the place which is now called Independence is the center place; and a spot for the temple is lying westward, upon a lot which is not far from the courthouse."
Finally, this statement regarding the temple lot was released by the church: "The site is situated on a hillside...a beautiful mixed development owned by the Church in northeast Kansas City, just west of the Liberty Jail Historic Site."
