Detroit, MI

Detroit serves as a major port on the Detroit River connecting the Great Lakes system to the Saint Lawrence Seaway. The Detroit metropolitan region currently holds roughly one-half of the state’s population. From 1805 to 1847, Detroit was the capital of Michigan. The city’s riverfront is the focus of much development and is a mainstay in the city’s plan to enhance its economy through tourism.

LDS History

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Michigan began with the Mack family. Almira Mack Scobey had gone to Kirtland, Ohio to visit her cousin Joseph Smith and there they joined the church. On June 7, 1831 Doctrine and Covenants Section 52 was received which among other things commanded another one of Mack Scobey’s cousins Hyrum Smith and also John Murdock to go to Detroit and preach the gospel on the way to Jackson County, Missouri. These two brethren went to Michigan in company with Mack Scobey and Hyrum’s (and Joseph’s) mother, Lucy Mack Smith. They were also accompanied by Lyman Wight and John Corrill. The missionaries eventually went to Pontiac where they had much success, baptizing several people, including David Dort, the husband of one of the Mack sisters.
