The Martin Harris Home

On Thursday morning we started out by visiting the Martin Harris Home. It now serves as living quarters for senior missionaries serving in that area, so we weren’t able to go inside. From the outside through you get a feel for how well off the Harris family was, and how generous Martin Harris was to mortgage his farm to help print The Book of Mormon. The outside is made of cementing stones to the wall. They would pick the smoothest and nicest looking ones for the front of the house, and then the next nicest for the sides, and the least appealing for the back.
