— December 3, 1837 - September 23, 1872 —

This site marks the location of the main dwelling of the East or Gathering Family established for the expressed purpose of gathering souls "out of the world". Here the new converts were "proved awhile" until they convinced the elders and eldresses of the sincerity and purity of their motives.

This tablet erected September 29, 1950.
