Historic Kirtland Village & Temple Photos

The Historic Kirtland Village in Kirtland, OH on the far eastern outskirts of Cleveland is an open air village consisting of several restored or rebuilt buildings now run by the Mormon Church. The village played a role in the early days of the Latter Day Saints movement and their eventual migration to Utah. Nearby is a separate attraction, the Gothic Kirtland Temple (1834-6) which was the chief focus of the original Kirtland community.
