Historic Sites Summer Series

3 July 2022

Join Lachlan Mackay and Barb Walden at 7:00 p.m. each Thursday in July as they share the stories, architectural details, historic personalities, and powerful lessons behind Community of Christ historic sites. The summer series is free, but participants must register for the online programs.

  • July 7,  Kirtland Temple: Explore what makes the Kirtland Temple such a beloved structure for past and present generations. Learn the story behind Kirtland's "House of the Lord" and the significant people who helped build the historic house of worship. 
  • July 14, Joseph Smith Historic Site: On the east bank of the Mississippi River stands the Joseph Smith Historic Site, home to a collection of houses once owned by Joseph and Emma Smith, the Smith Family Cemetery, the Nauvoo House, and the reconstructed Red Brick Store.
  • July 21, Plano Stone Church: Six years after Joseph Smith III became church president, the Smith family and church headquarters moved from Nauvoo to Plano, Illinois, a growing town on a rail line just west of Chicago.  
  • July 28, Liberty Hall: This beautifully restored landmark on the Restoration Trail, known as Liberty Hall, was once home to Joseph Smith III and his family from 1881-1905. Steve Smith, Liberty Hall site director, and Barb Walden tell the stories behind the site and the four Community of Christ presidents who once called it home.
