CRANBERRY TWP — The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints will expand its presence in Cranberry Township with the construction of a temple.

The church announced Tuesday that it selected a roughly six-acre parcel on Powell Road as the site for its Pittsburgh-area temple, which will be located near its Cranberry meetinghouse at the intersection of Powell and Rochester roads. It will be the group's second temple in Pennsylvania, with the first located in the Philadelphia area.

This is an excerpt of a story that appears in Friday's Butler Eagle.
