Adam-Ondi-Ahman, Missouri

I’ve wanted to come here for years! It is near the town of Gallatin, MO. The prophet, Joseph Smith, laid out a town here in 1838 to provide for the increasing number of church-member immigrants. They had to abandon the town when persecutions increased. He named the town in tribute to Adam, the patriarch of the human race.
This is a picture overlooking the valley of Adam-Ondi-Ahman. Spring Hill and Tower Hill are across the valley from this point.

Maybe you can read this information sign that is located at the Tower Hill Overlook:

This is overlooking the valley from Tower Hill. In case you can’t read the sign, in the above pic, this was named Tower Hill because Joseph had found ruins of an ancient Indian tower.

Adam-Ondi-Ahman is a beautiful place with a peaceful spirit. There was a large group in the picnic area. Someone was speaking to them about the history when we were there. There is a great place for a large group to sit and overlook the valley.
