Quiet, unassuming, humble approach and presentation. Our guide was from India and she was earnest and cheerful. History of 180 years ago well preserved. Good stewards.

This temple probably has more historical meaning to members or offshoots of the LDS church, however, it's also marks an important time in U.S. history, the Second Great Awakening. So if you're interested in either or both take time to stop by and take a...More
