Mormon Trails: Pioneer Pathways to Zion, 1846–1890

Opening July 13, 2017

Nineteenth-century pioneers traversed many trails to reach Zion. Church leaders undertook the monumental task of helping Latter-day Saints gather from foreign lands and the United States to ensure their safety and salvation—and to build the Lord’s kingdom. Just as in pioneer times, the Church today is a means of blessing God’s children. Discover the many trails to Zion—then and now.
