Historic Salem sponsored a walking tour of Mormon history in Salem, MA on September 9 and I tagged along. There was quite a large group of people, mostly people who were not Mormons but were interested in learning more about them because of the "Mormon Moment."
Our guides: Debbie Benvie and Brother Chapman. Debbie is a convert to the church and became very interested in the Mormon history about 10 years ago and found many documents in local libraries that people had forgotten about. Brother Chapman is from CES and the Boston LDS Institute.
Years later, Joseph Smith came back to Salem to investigate a claim of wealth available to him, as well as to preach the gospel. While there, they stayed in this tenement. Doctrine & Covenants Section 111 was given to Joseph Smith while he was in Salem.
This is the Philip's Library. This is where many of the primary sources that Debbie found are located. I hear they have an amazing collection of historical and genealogical document. It's on my list of places to go.
This is the home of Nathan Felt, a Mormon in Salem in the 1840s. One of Brigham Young's daughters lived with them for a while because Salem was the only place that offered advanced schooling for girls.
