  • We walked around the historical buildings but they were all locked up and the Community of Christ visitors center was closed. We could see the buildings from the outside and were some markers with some info. I wonder if the Community of Christ outfit is running out of cash. They should probably just sell the joint. Anyways I visited the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints visitors center across town and their buildings were open. We also learned about some of the historical background for these buildings on their wagon tour.
  • The whole area is a wonderful experience including the Joseph Smith Historic Site with great information. Great place to see how ancestors lived in the early 1800's.
