Esta cárcel histórica ubicada al noroeste del Kansas City es reverenciada por la Iglesia de los Santos de los Últimos Días porque aquí es donde se encerró al fundador de la religión Joseph Smith. En la década de 1830, muchos mormones, incluído Smith, llegaron desde Ohio y trataron de crear un asentamiento en Jackson County. Como habían sido expulsados de Ohio, a la gente de la zona no le gustó mucho la idea de que ahora se asentaran en su ciudad, así que en 1838 estalló la guerra y Smith se entregó poco después. En la actualidad, el lugar ya no es una cárcel, sin embargo la Iglesia de los Santos de los Últimos Días sigue ocupándose del centro para las actividades religiosas del lugar y también muestra una réplica de cómo era la cárcel por adentro.
