Must see · Historic Site · Tourist Spot
The Smith Family Farm was the boyhood home of Joseph Smith, the founder of the Latter Day Saint movement.
The farm—located in the townships of Palmyra, Wayne County and Manchester, Ontario County, New York—includes the Sacred Grove, the Smiths' restored frame home, and a reconstructed log home. The farm site passed into ownership of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in 1915, and in the 1990s, the Church restored the frame home, reconstructed the log home, and built a welcome center. Church missionaries provide free tours.
