The revelation that became known as the Word of Wisdom (see D&C 89) was received here, along with other revelations.
This store played a major role in the history of the Church in Kirtland. Joseph and Emma Smith lived here for a short while. It became the headquarters of the Church in 1832. Several significant revelations were received here. The School of the Prophets was held in the store from 24 January 1833 until sometime in April 1833.
Significant Events:
The Prophet Joseph received the revelation on the Word of Wisdom (D&C 89). He did much of the work on the translation of the Bible here.
