We specially enjoyed the temple grounds. Very peaceful. There are outdoor benches and the grove appears to have been used for meetings. The temple was amazing. Our little tour group sang a traditional hymn at the end.

We decided randomly to visit the Kirtland Temple after seeing a brochure at the James A. Garfield National Historic Site (ALSO a fantastic local site). We have visited other temples previously, but had always wanted to visit Kirtland since it was the FIRST LDS temple...More

It is amazing to think that this edifice was built in the early 1800's by manual labor. I was most impressed that the wood; the structural wood, the flooring, the pews, the moldings - all the wood, was milled in the area by a waterwheel...More

This temple was built by the LDS church in 1836, and is currently owned by an offshoot of the current LDS/Mormon church, the Community of Christ. They also operate a nearby visitor's center and gift shop. When we visited, tours were running every half hour...More

I found this church on my unplanned day adventure out. I found the history fascinating, and the architecture of the church amazing! They do small groups for the tours, which makes it very personable. Unlike the 'overview' on trip advisor, our guided tour included the...More

Quiet, unassuming, humble approach and presentation. Our guide was from India and she was earnest and cheerful. History of 180 years ago well preserved. Good stewards.

Being LDS my family and I wanted to see this temple. Knowing so much history about it; it did sadden our hearts to see it. The "Silent witness of their faith" truly applies here. The Community of Christ charge a $5 per person over the...More

The temple is beautiful. It is not as ornate as he temple the Mormons have today, but they gave all they had in 1836 to build what they believed to be a House of Gog. It is very lovely inside. They do charge you $5...More
