The Stone Church is part of the Community Christ Church in Independence.  The Stone Church sits next to the sixty-three acre tract of land consecrated and dedicated in August 1831 by Joseph Smith Jr. as the “land of Zion and the spot for the temple.”  The cornerstone of the building was set in place on April 6, 1888.  Unfortunately the doors to the church were locked.

This really does remind me of a stone church in my home town of Quincy. The last time I was there, I tried to see the inside but, it too was locked.

it's so unfortunate that churches need to be locked to prevent theft or vandalism.! A strong looking building - perfect for a Stone church.

You have beautiful stone buildings out there. This one looks so fresh it might have been built last year.

A great building of stone. I really like me. Too bad it was locked. Interesting photos. Peter.
