Kanesville Memorial



A log tabernacle was built in 1846 near this site, and that is where Brigham Young was sustained president by the members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Both the original tabernacle and the 1996 replica are no longer standing. They have been replaced by plantings, walkways, sculptures, and interpretive signage. The site is served by a visitor center to interpret the events associated with the Council Bluffs area.
