Richmond/Far West/Adam-ondi-Ahman/Nauvoo

Following breakfast, we drive to Far West to see the temple site. Cornerstones for a temple were laid here in July 1838. Although the Saints were not able to complete the temple, the cornerstone and property remain as a testament of their faith and devotion to the gospel of Jesus Christ. Our next stop is Adam-ondi-Ahman. Spring Hill was named "Adam-ondi-Ahman" by the Prophet Joseph Smith, as indicated by the Lord in revelation (see D&C 1:16). We then continue to Nauvoo.
