LDS History

Emigrating saints reached the eastern bluffs of the Missouri River on 14 June 1846 and established Kanesville, later called Council Bluffs. It was there on 13 July 1846 that nearly 500 men from the “Camp of Israel” were mustered in for military service into the Mormon Battalion. At Kanesville Oliver Cowdery helped establish the restored gospel. Iowa remained in the Northern States Mission until 1960 when it was transferred to the Central States Mission. The first permanent stake in Iowa, the Cedar Rapids Stake, was created in 1966. The Des Moines Stake followed in 1970. For a short time, Iowa became part of the Missouri Independence Mission, until it was reassigned to the Iowa Des Moines Mission in 1976.
