This has been a wonderful visit. I took thee tour from the visitor center and also walked around the gardens, admiring and re-learning what happen here long time ago. A must to see site for all family LDS or not. Have a wonderful time and the people in the visitor center were so nice.

This temple probably has more historical meaning to members or offshoots of the LDS church, however, it's also marks an important time in U.S. history, the Second Great Awakening. So if you're interested in either or both take time to stop by and take a tour. The tour guide we had was engaging and knowledgeable. As a member of the... More

Great place to visit, along with the historic sites administered by the Church or Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints a mile or so to the north Together, they give a glimpse of what life was like in the region in the early 19th century.

They conduct tours of the building and also have a nice museum at the visitor's center. This is a unique building and has been given several historic recognitions over the years. One of these recognitions... More

This temple is owned and operated by the Community of Christ. It has historical significance for members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints as well, as many significant events in Church History happened here. You can take a tour for a small fee ($5.00), and it is well worth your time. Tours run at specific times,... More

A remarkable tribute to the faith and dedication of the Latter-day Saint founders. It's not owned by the LDS anymore but still an amazing piece of their history and testimonies of their religion. We also went down the road to the Historic Kirkland Site.....another place not to miss. They just go ha d in hand and are right together. A... More

Tours begin at the visitors' center and are on the half hour each hour from 9:30 A.M. until 4:30 P.M. (with the exception of 12:30). The tour is about 60 minutes beginning with a short film explaining... More
