John Johnson Home
While in this house working on a translation of the Bible, the Prophet Joseph Smith and Sidney Rigdon received the revelation now recorded in Doctrine and Covenants 76, along with other revelations.
The home of John and Alice Johnson was located in Hiram, Ohio. This room is on the second floor.
Significant Events:
The Prophet Joseph Smith and his wife, Emma, lived in this home. Joseph and Sidney Rigdon received the marvelous vision of the degrees of glory in the presence of several others on 16 February 1832 (D&C 76). The Prophet Joseph also worked on the Joseph Smith Translation of the Bible (JST) in this home. On 24 March 1832, while Joseph and Emma were living here, a mob of apostates and anti-Mormons severely beat and tarred and feathered Joseph and Sidney.
