About John Johnson



"...The John Johnson Farm served as headquarters for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints for approximately six months between September 1831 and March 1832. Also, in an upper room of the house, several significant revelations were received including Doctrine and Covenants Section 76, the vision of the three degrees of glory..."



Joseph Smith, Jr., President of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and Sidney Rigdon lived in the home of John Johnson at Hiram, Ohio, during September and October 1831. It was while residing here that the Prophet was dragged out by a mob, tarred and feathered, almost poisoned, and severely beaten. Friends stayed the night to remove tar and patch wounds, and the very next morning the Prophet preached a sermon to the Saints in the area, converting several from the mob that attended the meeting. The Prophet Joseph recieved many revelations while residing there and the home has been restored by the Church and held as a sacred place in LDS history.
