Save the date for a Symposium to celebrate the 175th anniversary of the Latter-day Saint Exodus across Iowa, the founding of Kanesville (forerunner of Council Bluffs), and the granting of Iowa statehood - all in 1846. This event will be a two-track Symposium featuring Latter-day Saint (Mormon) scholars, local historians, overland trail experts, archeologists, geographers, and many more! This event promises to deliver a harvest of new insights into early Council Bluffs/ Mormon history. A musical concert and several fun activities will follow on Saturday evening at Tom Hanafan River's Edge Park.

Admission is free and open to the public! Sessions will feature both live and zoom-based presentations.

If you will be attending either in-person or virtually, please RSVP to Richard Bennett via richard.bennett@churchofjesuschrist.org, or call the Mormon Trail Center at (402) 453-9372.
