A very pleasant place to stop and learn just a little off the beaten path. The guides are very friendly and welcoming and the experience is restful as well as insightful.

“Great little visitor center, interesting history!”
5 of 5 bubbles 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!

“Beautiful site”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 June 2014

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

“Rewarding Visit”

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.

“Beautiful scenery and informative display.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 November 2013

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.
