We used to do a yearly visit 10 years or more ago, and decided to see the lights again this year. They do a great job at decorating.

This was a very peaceful place to meditate about my ancestors who lived here. Not much to see, but as always with LDS Church History sites, it is a peaceful place.

Birthplace of the Mormon Prophet Joseph Smith. Who gave his life for the Lord 38 years later. Quite, sacred, peaceful place.
