Isaac and Lucy Morley Farm:
The Restoration Comes to Kirtland, Ohio

AbstractVideoInteresting Facts


When Joseph and Emma Smith moved to Kirtland, they lived for a while on the Isaac Morley farm. Isaac Morley already had as many as eleven different homes on his farm, with families living there who were part of the Reformed Baptist movement and who wanted to have “all things in common” like the New Testament church in Acts. It was here that Emma gave birth to twins, who died shortly after. The Lord gave several revelations to Joseph here. Also, the the fourth conference of the Church was held here, in which the first ordinations to the office of high priest occurred and Joseph’s countenance was miraculously changed.
