2 Houses Where Joseph Smith Lived
By Jan Pinborough
Come explore an important place in Church history!
Palmyra, New York, is where the Restoration of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints began 193 years ago. Luke, Rachel, and Julia S. visited this special place to learn more about where the Prophet Joseph Smith lived and how he helped restore the Church to the earth.
The Log Home
This log home was built to look like the one where Joseph lived from age 12 to 19.
The Frame Home
When Joseph was 19, his family moved to a new house. He lived there when he got the gold plates from the Hill Cumorah.
