The Newel K. Whitney store played a major role in the history of the Church in Kirtland. Joseph and Emma Smith lived here for a short while. Several significant revelations were received here. The School of the Prophets was held in the store from January 24, 1833, until sometime in April 1833.

Significant Events: The Prophet Joseph received the revelation on the Word of Wisdom (D&C 89). He did much of the work on the Joseph Smith Translation of the Bible (JST) here.
