Church to Restore Historic Site in Pennsylvania

Recommended Posts

I’m happy to report that the Church will be restoring some historic sites in Pennsylvania adjacent to the Susquehanna River – where the resurrected John the Baptist appeared to Joseph Smith and Oliver Cowdery to confer upon them the Aaronic Priesthood, and later Peter, James, and John appeared to confer upon them the Melchizedek Priesthood.

Reconstruction is a more appropriate word than restoration. There is currently nothing at the site but a monument and some plaques. I don't know if always reconstructing and creating "fake" buildings at historic sites is always the best thing to do. Just saying!

Wow I was just talking with someone about the oldest chapel in the Southeast rich with historical issues was torn down the day after the new branch was built…because I am told the church is moving in a new direction about such things. This despite many members dating back 150+ years were buried there…all but the cemetery was sold. Now as it was spelled over 100 years ago “Morman Church Rd”, has no Mormon Church.
