Carthage Jail

What an amazing experience it was to stand inside Carthage jail where the Prophet of the Restoration once stood. There are no words to describe the emotions that came over me when I felt the bullet hole in the door (it is the original door) and looked out the window Joseph fell through. I had a great testimony of Joseph before, but standing in the jail solidified those thoughts and feelings. I admit that I had a few tears rolling down my cheeks as I stood, I couldn't help it.

This is the actual door that Hyrum was shot through.

The window Joseph fell through.
