    See the original home and community of the Mormons. It has the original general store and farmhouse, and the only known existing Ashery in the US! The tour is guided by 'sisters' usually after watchin...  more »

    It was Sunday afternoon and I was driving right past what they call Historic Kirtland. I noticed cars in the parking lot and people walking about the grounds. I always wondered what was going on there...  more »

    We just wanted to see the buildings and history of the place, but if you are not Mormon don't go. The guides are nice, but want to preach their religion to you.  more »

    Absolutely perfect. Nothing could be improved. Cleaned restrooms, most friendly tour guides. Loved it. Truly. Gotta stop for this one!

    I was raised LDS, so coming to a place like Kirtland (which yes, I'll admit, probably seems entirely random to the average person) was actually a really interesting experience. Some of my ancestors lived in Kirtland, so seeing a piece of my personal history was really insightful and something I'll never forget. My dad, my brother, and I all went on a guided tour around the grounds which is where the Mormon Church moved to in the 1800s. A lot of these buildings are restored originals where you can see what it was like to be in the village during that time. Kirtland itself is actually a really beautiful small town and from what the tour guides told me, it is quite spectacular in the autumn when the leaves change color. The volunteers were very knowledgable and kind young women who told us a lot about the history of the grounds and had fun facts at nearly every turn. Really cute tour and fun if you are into local history!

    Air conditioned. Need I say more? Very clean, neat and has a sweet spirit about the place. Friendly tour guides and very informative.

    Beautiful area and fantastic tour! I learned a lot about the history of the people that once lived in those homes and their dedication to their beliefs. I truly felt the spirit of God in this place. We even got a sneak peak at the hundreds of nativities they had set up for their Christmas celebration. It was a beautiful exhibit with nativities from all over the world made from a wide variety of materials.
