Palmyra Area

Palmyra Area

Martin Harris lived here, though the present building was built later. He mortgaged his farm to pay for the first printing of the Book of Mormon.

 

The Erie canal was completed just a few years before the restoration of the gospel. It ran at the north end of Palmyra, and was often used by the early saints.

 

The tombstone of Alvin Smith, elder brother of Joseph. Alvin died before the gospel was restored, but revelation indicates he accepted it in the spirit world.

 

Alvin is buried near the Four Corners Churches, seen in the background.

 

Part of this home on Stafford Road just south of the Smith farm was part of the original school the Smith children attended. The building has been moved from its original location.

 

The school where Oliver Cowdery taught was located here, where the present cobblestone building was later constructed.

 

New building that houses the Palmyra ward, across the street from the temple.
