Eliza R. Snow's Pocket Watch

Hyrum Smith's Sunglasses +9 More Treasures at the Church History Museum

While Eliza R. Snow was acting as secretary of the Relief Society, Joseph Smith gave her this watch to help her with her responsibility of beginning and ending meetings on time. She later gave the watch to Joseph F. Smith. Eliza R. Snow is perhaps best known for her poems and some of her words are still sung today in hymns like "O My Father."

 See this beautiful pocket watch in the Nauvoo section of the museum, along with other unique Relief Society artifacts.
