Carthage Jail & Visitors' Center

Visit the restored Carthage Jail, where the Prophet Joseph Smith and his brother Hyrum were martyred. Walk through the beautiful gardens, where a memorial statue pays tribute to Joseph and Hyrum, then enter the Visitors' Center where a thirty minute tour will begin.  Every ten minutes, a new tour will start, and guests are served on a first-come, first-served basis.

 

In order to preserve the sacred nature of this historic site, large group meetings

and picnics etc.,  should be held at other locations. 

We invite you to maintain a reverent attitude while visiting here.
