The Oklahoma City Oklahoma Temple was announced on March 14, 1999, to be built on land purchased years earlier for the building of a meetinghouse, along with an additional parcel of land donated by the sellers. The additional land was originally used as a baseball field by local church members.
The temple groundbreaking took place on July 3, 1999 in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. The temple open house began on July 15, 2000 with over 40,000 visitors touring the temple in a seven-day period. James E. Faust, second counselor in the First Presidency, dedicated the Oklahoma City Oklahoma Temple on July 30, 2000.
The temple has a total floor area of 10,769 square feet (1,000.5 m2), two ordinance rooms, and two sealing rooms.
On April 10, 2017 the LDS Church announced that the temple would close in October 2017 for renovations that would be completed in 2019. On January 16, 2019, the LDS Church announced that the temple would be rededicated on May 19, 2019. While the church originally announced there would be no open house, an update on 22 April indicated there would be an open house from April 24 to May 1, excluding Sunday. The temple was rededicated by Henry B. Eyring.
