Historic Sites


Three hundred miles from New York City, there’s a ten-acre patch of forest that more than 100,000 people visit every year.  Why do they choose to come here?

To remember a prayer that was offered almost 200 years ago. A prayer that has changed their lives.

More than 15 million people trace their faith’s roots to events that took place in this forest, to the questions a young Joseph Smith asked and the answers God gave.

More than 10 sites and points of interest in the area, are owned and operated by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. This is where the restoration of the Gospel of Jesus Christ all started.
