  • Really a wonderful place to reflect on how blessed we are. I felt the title is paradoxical and also that though these church leaders were imprisoned, they were made free. Enjoy!
  • Well preserved and restored site where the Prophet Joseph Smith was imprisoned for four months in the winter of 1837 to 1838. Three sections of D & C were received here. No heat and mostly candle light in this dungeon like prison.
  • This gave me a lot to think about. I loved visiting a place that is so historically significant to my faith. It made the commitment of the early Saints more obvious to me, and the Sister missionaries taught me some facts I didn’t know.
  • I love coming to Liberty Jail! I know it kinda sounds weird. I always learn something new with each visit. ❤
  • This is a solemn place- special spirit here- great info from missionaries
