On 19 May 1838, a surveying party led by Joseph Smith, Prophet and First President of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, arrived here to found a new city. Joseph Smith organized the Diahman Stake here on 28 June 1838, with John Smith as President and Lyman Wight and Reynolds Cahoon as counselors. A high council and bishop were also called. The Prophet then stood on “preacher’s rock” and addressed approximately 1,000 Saints. For more information click on Far West & Adam ondi Ahman.pdf
