LDS History

Concerted missionary efforts in Alabama started around 1842-1843 in Alabama with the work of Elders James Brown and John U. Eldridge. Persecution was widespread in the 1880s with some even asking Alabama’s governor to force the missionaries from the state. This subsided somewhat by 1894. A Sunday School was organized in Montgomery on August 22, 1911. Many of these early converts were baptized in the Alabama River. The LDS Church began to grow more rapidly in Alabama following World War II. Alabama’s first stake was created in Huntsville in 1968.
