John Johnson, a prosperous farmer and his wife Alice (known to all as Elsa), welcomed the young Latter-day Saint Prophet, Joseph Smith, into their home in 1831. While living at the home, Joseph received many divine revelations that are accepted as doctrine by members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. During the year that the Smith family stayed at the John Johnson Home, Ohio became the Church's Headquarters. Many people came from all over the United States to meet the Latter-day Saint Prophet.
Friendly tour guides provide interesting insights into the home's history as well as the important events that took place here.
