Incredible collection of nativity scenes from all over the world. Beautiful little masterpieces that turn every room into an art gallery! In humble places like that you will find more Christmas spirit than anywhere else!
Having heard the stories of the early saints who lived in Kirtland, I have wanted to visit this important spot in LDS history. Like all LDS Historical sites, Kirtland is so well done and the missionary guides are so informative and helpful. We enjoyed our...More
I learned interesting new information at the ashery. In all my history studies, I don't recall even hearing about this valuable industry. It's intriguing that people could earn money by selling the ashes from their fireplaces or burning of limbs and stumps from clearing land....More

We came in the early evening and there were not a lot people there at the time. All tours are free. It was like stepping back in time and feeling what it must have been like to be an early saint. The sister missionaries that...More
My family thoroughly enjoyed our time in Historic Kirtland. The Newell K Whitney store was a particular favorite. The missionaries helping us were very informative and so kind. They adjusted their tour to accommodate me in my wheelchair, as well as personalizing the tour to...More
Be prepared for some longer fact based presentations which you may or may not appreciate. From a historical standpoint this site is very interesting. I particularly enjoyed the time period displays, saw mill and tannery.
My son and I visited the preserved store and buildings. We arrived in the morning just as they were opening and had a tour all to our selves with two guides that explained the religious history of the area. Our favorite part was walking around...More
Our daughter lives in Toledo and as many times as we have visited her, we have not taken the time to make the drive (about 2 1/2 hours) to visit these amazing early LDS Church history sites. In spite of it being the middle of...More
We spent a beautiful December morning touring the Historic Kirtland Annual Nativity Exhibit. There were slightly over 1000 diverse depictions of the Christmas Nativity from around the world. They ranged from tiny, the size of a nutshell, to massive. They were crafted in every media...More

The Church of Christ owns the property of the Kirtland Temple now. They are a break off group from the "Mormons" or as the Mormon church is really called "The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints". The Church of Christ used to be called the Reorganized Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. They have a very nice tour of the Kirtland Temple and when we went there it was not "preachy". The "Mormon" church has a visitor center and restored buildings in another area down the road from the Kirtland Temple and they give more information about when the Mormons lived there in the 1830s.

I agree that there is no public transportation to get there, so renting a car is the only option unless you find someone to take you. You could call Uber to get a quote, as they are often less than a taxi. Overall, the... More
I agree that there is no public transportation to get there, so renting a car is the only option unless you find someone to take you. You could call Uber to get a quote, as they are often less than a taxi. Overall, the rental may be the least expensive way to go.
