Historical sites visited.
Names in green indicate sites often missed by other church history tours.
Just 22 miles from Palmyra. Was a stagecoach stop in Joseph Smith's time. Brigham Young, his father, and all ten living brothers and sisters joined the Church here in 1832. So did their spouses, some of whom were Methodist ministers. All went through hardships and persecutions as a result. None ever apostatized. Heber C. Kimball, his wife Vilate and his father joined here too. Heber C. Kimball, Brigham Young and many others saw a stunning vision in the night sky here the same night Joseph Smith received the plates of the Book of Mormon in Palmyra.
Smith family farm, rebuilt log home where Moroni visits took place, Frame home where plates were hidden under hearth. Sacred Grove, Hill Cumorah, Grandin Press, Martin Harris Farm, Palmyra Cemetery, group photo at the Palmyra Temple.
Peter Whitmer Farm where the Church was organized. Site of the visions to the three witnesses. Book of Mormon translation finished. Many D&C sections received here.
Harmony PA & Susquehanna River!
150 miles from Palmyra. Extremely important site and remarkably beautiful. Home of Emma Hale Smith’s family. Josiah Stowell silver mine digging venture. Entire Book of Mormon translated here except for a few pages. Martin Harris, Oliver Cowdery lived with Joseph and Emma there while acting as scribes. John the Baptist visit to Joseph and Oliver. Higher priesthood restored near here by Peter, James, and John. Many other interesting events. For some it is worth the price of the tour just to visit this incredible site!
Rest stop en route to Kirtland. Mark Twain wrote nearly all of his works here. We visit his study and hear fine presentations by college staff. We also visit the grave of noble runaway slave, John W. Jones.
Newell K. Whitney Store (School of the Prophets; Word of Wisdom received here with several other D&C sections). Also brand-new spectacular Kirtland Visitors Center, the newly-restored John Johnson Inn, saw mill, ashery, and family history facilities. Also the Isaac Morley Farm where the united order was first practiced. After-hours private tour of the Kirtland Temple.
Fairport Harbor OH
On Lake Erie, just 12 miles from Kirtland. Here saints arrived and departed from points east, including nearly all missionaries going to and from Europe.
John Johnson Farm. Joseph Smith lived here for a year while producing the “Inspired Translation” of the Bible. He was also tarred and feathered here. Many sections of the D&C received including the great 76th and the three degrees of glory section.
