In the United States near Salt Lake City is a beautiful Granite Mountain, which for many years have been attracting the attention of not only lovers of picturesque nature, but also desperate researchers of the unknown. The fact is that in this mountain there is the Mormon Vault. Here, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints keeps its most important documents.
The availability of the archive became known from official reports in 1965. Its location is a tunnel carved into the mountain at a depth of 180 meters. The entrance to the storehouse is a huge door, the weight of which is 14 tons, in addition, the entrance round the clock is guarded by armed people. The structure of the storage facility is so reliable that it can withstand even the explosion of a warhead with ease. It is important to note that in addition to the direct storage in the dungeons, several laboratories and administrative premises are hidden, which are used for important events.
One of the main values hidden in the vault is a microfilm library, which has 40000 film rolls. For more than a decade Mormon representatives have been engaged in the digitization of priceless materials. According to unconfirmed reports, it is also known about the existence of a second storage facility, which is located three kilometers away from the Granite Mountain. Access to the vault is open only to elected representatives of the church, ordinary people can only admire the panoramic view of the Granite Mountain from afar and wonder what artifacts are hidden in its caves.
