Day 5 - Still in Vermont - Joseph Smith Birthplace

Sunday Morning we spent going to church at the lovely little branch in Vermont. They were super friendly. I got the feeling it was pretty strange to get visitors, especially ones from so far away.

After our church meetings we headed over to Sharon, Vermont so see the Joseph Smith Birthplace.

The obelisk is one piece of granite 38 and 1/2 feet tall. One foot for each year of his life.

Here is where the cabin stood that the Smith family lived in when Joseph Smith was born.

At the Visitor's center we were given a brief history of Joseph Smith's Ancestry and how they came to be in Vermont at the time of his birth.

We also watched the movie "Meet the Mormons" since my niece and Sister-in-law hadn't seen it yet.

Flags were placed for the Memorial Day Weekend.

I really do need to figure out why all my pictures are turning out somewhat crooked.
