The Church in USA—Indiana

In 1831, Church missionaries arrived in Indiana and organized congregations. The Prophet Joseph Smith visited Greenville for one month in 1832. In 1834, a group of more than 100 members (Zion’s Camp) marched through Indiana to regain their lands seized by mobs in Missouri. They peacefully crossed the state from Ohio.

Early Church members held meetings in homes until a hall was rented in 1913. In 1927, a meetinghouse was built and then dedicated by President Heber J. Grant.
