InHallowed Ground Sacred Journeys, Brigham Young University professors tell the story of the sites that are of importance to members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
Joseph Smith, Senior Log Home, Palmyra NY
Some sites are well known, such as the Sacred Grove in Palmyra, New York, or the majestic Salt Lake City Temple.
Others may be lesser known, such as the baptismal site of Brigham Young, or the site of the first underground parking garage in America, which was built by Mormons.
Joseph Smith Birthplace Memorial, Sharon, VT
Each week on this blog, a new site will be featured, complete with a documentary video and stories and pictures based on the scholarly work of Brigham Young University Religious Education professors.

As we move through time and space across hallowed ground, we see the sacred journeys of those gone before. They have led the way and walked the path that we are now called to tread.
Kirtland, Ohio Temple
As we consider the responsibilities we have to bear in our time, we don't have to look far to see the shining example of these pioneers. May we all remember the rich heritage that is ours today, and following that example, may we strive to leave our own legacy of faith and perseverance for those who follow.
We invite you to come explore with us and go back in time to visit these magnificent sites as we present Hallowed Ground Sacred Journeys.
"I have been sharing this information with friends around the world and the response is outstanding. These tours contain information that we could never access on our own and can be shared and treasured forever."
