LDS ‘Island of Goodness.’ Manassa, Colorado.

John Morgan fields in Manassa, Colorado

Take a few minutes to read the interesting article posted at The Ancestor Files yesterday.

  • Manassa, Colorado, a town of “spacious, uncluttered dirt streets.”
  • The “hub colony” of Mormon colonization in Colorado’s San Luis Valley
  • Established by a group of 72 converts to Mormonism from Georgia and Alabama, led by Elder John Morgan
A glimpse into John Morgan’s life in Manassa, Colorado, from his journal, is posted here on this blog.
