Learn about the Foundation’s participation in inspiring projects that highlight Mormon history around the globe.

The Ensign Peak Foundation was originally formed in 1992. The Foundation was significantly involved in the preservation and creation of the Ensign Peak Park in Salt Lake City, Utah.  Subsequently, the Foundation recognized that they had developed understanding and skills that could be channeled into other projects to help preserve the rich heritage associated with the history of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The name of the Foundation was subsequently changed to the Mormon Historic Sites Foundation (MHSF). In harmony with the guidance given by church president Russell M. Nelson, the Foundation name reverted back to the original Ensign Peak Foundation name in 2020.

Since that time the Foundation has been involved in numerous projects and continues to seek out ways to bring significance to sites of importance in Mormon History.
