Founded in 1847 by a group of Mormon Pioneers led by Brigham Young and fleeing hostility in the East, Salt Lake City is among the oldest cities in the region and is the world headquarters of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the LDS or Mormon Church). Mining and railroads initially brought economic growth, and the city became known as the "Crossroads of the West." In the 21st Century the city has developed a strong tourism industry and was host to the 2002 Winter Olympics.
The Salt Lake City metropolitan area is the industrial banking center of the United States, the center of business along the rapidly-growing Wasatch Front, and the gateway to several resort towns, ski resorts and national parks.
