"Mormon History"

The Mormons* more than any people helped to cause settlement on the western side of the Missouri.  Their settlement in the Florence area was a difficult period, and many died as a result.

The Mormons first arrived at the Missouri River starting in 1846, and settled for a brief period before traveling on, with the majority being the Winter of 1846/1847.   Many Mormons moved on to the Great Salt Lake Valley in 1848.

From 1846 to 1853, the area was mostly populated by the Mormons.  Even though after 1853 the area was no longer predominantly Mormon, the Mormons continued to be settled in the surrounding areas as late as 1859 or 1860.

There is so much to learn about the Mormon contribution to local history, the information has been broken down into several pages.  To best learn and understand the full story, start at the top; you can choose 'Next' at the end of each page.  'T.O.C.'' returns to this page.  The side menu listing all pages will be displayed on each page.

All on a single page. (if you have a fast computer)
