  • 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.
  • I took my boys here while on my drive back home from Massachusetts to Utah. Elder & Sister Mueller made our whole experience a wonderful one. The time they spent with me & my kids was greatly appreciated. They were understanding, patient, kind, & their testimonies were renewing for an inactive (solely out of laziness, haha) member like me. The experience has lit that fire in my heart again. I mainly wanted to leave this review so I could thank that sweet senior missionary couple. They do such a wonderful job & we appreciate them so much!!! As a general review of the rest of the grounds & buildings- it is well-kept, clean, beautiful, & well worth your time to stop & visit.
  • Would have liked more historical knowledge but it is run by missionaries so I understand the religious detail.
