Sidney Rigdon Home

This is the home that was occupied by the first counselor to the prophet Joseph, Sidney Rigdon. Sidney was with the prophet on many occasions when revelations were given including the 76th section of the Doctrine and Covenants. He was a powerful and persuasive orator. When he left the Church, all of his family left with him, including his wife and daughters who attended the very first Relief Society meeting.

Did you learn that last fact as you were preparing your Relief Society birthday social?
That really is sad when you think of all some of these people could have meant to the growth of the Church.
