This site will give you the background of the originator of the Mormon church, Joseph Smith, and how the Latter-Day Saints came to be. They have recreated the Smith homes and preserved the grove on the Smith land. The buildings are filled with items of the period. The grove is a peaceful, beautiful site with many trails throughout it and many benches to sit on. The issue we ran into was the mosquitoes, and they were plentiful. The missionaries that staff the site are helpful and knowledgeable. A site worth seeing.
