The Peter Whitmer Farm

After attending the Corn Festival, we traveled to the Peter Whitmer Farm, which was our main objective of the day. It is out in the country away from any town, the closest being Fayette. It is a very peaceful setting.

Sister Jones stands in the replica of the room where the Church was organized on April 6, 1830.  To the right is the replica of the room and table where Joseph Smith completed the translation on the Book of Mormon.

We are standing outside the Whitmer's log cabin. There is a Visitor Center nearby and it is also a functioning ward meeting house.  The videos and displays are very good and there are interactive displays for children.  We were inspired by our visit there and appreciated Elder Pond for the informative tour.
