The Hawaii Temple, dedicated on Thanksgiving Day, 27 November 1919, was completed only twenty-six years after the dedication of the Salt Lake Temple and was the first temple of the latter-day dispensation located outside the North American continent. Located on the northeast side of the island of Oahu, the temple was built on an 11.4-acre portion of a large plantation purchased by the Church in 1865. In mid-1976 the temple was closed for extensive remodeling; it was rededicated 13–15 June 1978.
