Historic Kirtland, a small settlement in northern Ohio was where members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints gathered shortly after the Church was founded. Between 1831 and 1838, Joseph Smith and early members of the Church established Church headquarters in Kirtland and built a temple.
Our first stop of the day was the Issac Morley farm. Then we went to the Newel K. Whitney Store, Newel K. and Elizabeth Ann Whitney Home, Kirtland sawmill and The Kirtland Ashery.
We toured the Kirtland temple which is now owned by the community of Christ. It was a beautiful old building and it was inspiring to think about the sacrifices that the early saints must have made to build it.
