On a cold December 27th in 1832, in the small Northern Ohio village of Kirtland, the Prophet Joseph Smith received the command to "Establish a house, even a house of prayer, a house of fasting, a house of faith... A house of learning, a house of glory, a house of God." (D&C 88:119)

"The building of the Kirtland Temple commenced in June, 1833, under the immediate direction of the Almighty, through his servant, Joseph Smith. This was the first instance, for the lapse of many centuries, of God having given a pattern from the heavens, and manifested by direct revelation how the edifice should be constructed, in order that he He might accept and acknowledge it as His own. This knowledge inspired the saints to almost superhuman efforts." (WoM p.5)
