Go Forth


Our goals in the creation of the "Crossroads to the West" project to is to share the story of the migration of the early members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints through Iowa to the Middle Missouri Valley. In this project we focus on Winter Quarters - Kanesville and surrounding areas. It is the story of the pioneers who settled in the hills and hollows along the Missouri River as they waited to trek west to the Great Salt Lake Basin. The tour is arranged as a virtual book with each chapter telling a segment of the story of the early pioneers and their sojourn at the Missouri River.


This project is the result of over 50 years of research by the noted historian Gail G. Holmes, sharing his knowledge of the people, places and events of this historic area with supporting; maps, photographs, audio recordings, artwork and videos.
  Our Purpose:

To identify the people, places and events of the
early history of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, helping to presersve for descendants of pioneers and all who share in their legacy, their story of faith and fortitude.
