“Our historic sites help us tell the unique story of the Latter-day Saints,” Church historian and recorder Elder Marlin K. Jensen said recently. “Each site is filled with historically accurate details and engaging exhibits to help people better understand who we are and what is important to us.”
Some of the Church’s historic sites are large and encompass multiple locations, such as Nauvoo, Illinois. Other sites are small, including just a statue or small building, such as the Gadfield Elm Chapel in England. But regardless of their size, each site teaches important lessons about history, faith and commitment.
