Joseph Smith, Jr., President of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and Sidney Rigdon lived in the home of John Johnson at Hiram, Ohio, during September and October 1831.
It was while residing here that the Prophet was dragged out by a mob, tarred and feathered, almost poisoned, and severely beaten. Friends stayed the night to remove tar and patch wounds, and the very next morning the Prophet preached a sermon to the Saints in the area, converting several from the mob that attended the meeting.
The Prophet Joseph recieved many revelations while residing there and the home has been restored by the Church and held as a sacred place in LDS history.
