This historic jail located northwest of Kansas City is held in reverence by the Church of Latter-Day Saints because this is where the religion's founder Joseph Smith was once imprisoned. In the 1830's, many Mormons including Smith arrived from Ohio and tried to establish a settlement around Jackson County. Since they had been expelled from Ohio, the resulting establishments did not sit well with the locals, so in 1838 war broke out and Smith surrendered shortly thereafter. Today, the 'jail' is no longer, however the LDS church still runs the center for religious activities held here and it also has a replica inside of what the old jail looked like.
