An Elder Visits Independence, 1920

By: Ardis E. Parshall - June 28, 2012

We’ve run into Howard Driggs and his camera before – here he is visiting Nauvoo in about 1908, and here he is again, in Palmyra in 1922.

He visited Independence, Missouri in 1920, scouting up old Mormon sites, visiting the mission headquarters and seeing where Liahona: The Elders’ Journal was published, calling on the Hedrickites, and generally feeling like he had come home.

Some views through his camera:

A glimpse of the Hedrickite building on the Temple lot:



And two views (exterior and interior) of the Jackson County courthouse, where Joseph Smith stood trial, then (1920) undergoing a complete remodeling.
