“Great little visitor center, interesting history!”

Joseph Smith Birthplace Memorial
Reviewed 21 July 2014 via mobile

My 4 kids and I stopped in and the missionaries where great to adjust to my kids attention span and there many questions. She gave them a coloring sheet of the monument and a small crayon pack! My kids loved hearing about the granite since we had just recently been to rock of ages in barre where the Monument came from. She was also able to run down to the foundations in the woods and my kids and I loved seeing the old turn pike. Overall great historical stop and religious highlight!

For those interested in learning more about Joseph Smith and the Church of Latter-Day Saints this is a very informative place. The tour is not too long, and just very factual and there is no feeling of religious pressure. For those just looking for a wonderfully landscaped place with beautiful flowers, the monument made of Vermont granite, picnic area, and walk in the woods make this a nice place to enjoy the Vermont beauty and peace

We arrived just at closing time, but the missionaries were very accommodating, and kept the facilities open as long as we wanted to stay, and were very knowledgeable. A very pleasant and informative experience.

An informative overview of Joseph Smith Jr., the founder of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, birth and early family life, A polished shaft of solid Vermont granite, one of the largest in the world, marks the place of his birth. The presentation on how the solid granite shaft was moved to the hill top is a great story of American ingenuity. Very beautiful surrounding scenery.

By going here you can only be more open to other people and their beliefs; interesting history of a religion that I only know little about ; welcomed by the mission delegates who gave us information. A brief overview of Joseph Smith's life and the development of the LDS movement. Beautifully kept grounds and the granite memorial was an impressive one vast piece of solid natural Vermont granite.
