  • Even though it was closed because of Covid, it was lovely to walk the grounds. There were historical markers giving some of the history. We'll come back again to see the inside.

  • We did not actually enter the building. It was closed because of COVID (sad). This house of worship was built in the 1830's and was an impressive feat of engineering for the people that lived in the area at the time. Many of the people involved later moved to Illinois and built a larger temple on the Mississippi River in the 1840's.
  • Beautiful temple with rich history, but still closed due to covid fear.
  • Was closed due to covid, but the grounds are well maintained.
