The LDS Church has a wonderful History center with several beautifully restored buildings and a small community of historic business and homes. They offer a wonderful FREE tour of the beautiful grounds with videos and digital history and the sister missionaries are knowledgeable and informative. They said that many "tourists" come to Kirtland to see the Kirtland Temple (which is not owned by the LDS Church) and then they don't even know about The Historic Kirtland Center. Both the Temple and the Historic center are well worth the visit. The Center is free, the Temple is a $3 donation.Plan on a few hours for each site. Take the 30 mile trip out to the Johnson farm. It is well worth the trip. I asked the missionaries if it was worth the trip? They said that they would walk the 30 miles if they had to, so we went and sure enough, it was worth the trip. We didn't even have to walk (like i'm sure many of the early pioneers had to).
