History of the Hill Cumorah Pageant

It all began in the early 1920's when a small group of missionaries from New York City gathered for the Cumorah Conference at the Joseph Smith Farm to celebrate Pioneer Day, the day when Brigham Young first entered the Salt Lake Valley in 1847. In July of 1934, the conference was moved from the Farm to the Hill Cumorah.

Today the Pageant, with its incredible staging, lighting, special effects and costuming is still carefully designed to keep its message of Jesus Christ's love for us both simple and pure. The opening processional of the entire costumed cast through the audience is quite similar to the beginning of many of the great medieval pageants.

A few rooms still available at Abner Adams House
