Missing Church history sites? Tour the Kirtland Temple online

by | Jun. 05, 2020

Normally summer is usually a busy time of year in Kirtland, Ohio, as members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and others visit famous historic Church sites like the restored Newell K. Whitney store, the Kirtland Visitors’ Center, and the Kirtland Temple.

The Kirtland Temple holds special meaning to Latter-day Saints, as it is the site where several sacred events took place, including the appearance of the Savior and the delivery of priesthood keys by Moses, Elias, and Elijah.

This year, though, the temple is closed to visitors due to COVID-19. But those interested in still seeing it this summer don’t have to wait for the temple to reopen. The Community of Christ, which owns the Kirtland Temple, is currently offering a daily online tour of the building.

Tours are given online at 2:00 p.m. EDT. Tickets are $10, the proceeds of which will be used toward preserving the building.
