180 years ago today - Apr 5, 1844

[Wilford Woodruff]

I attended the dedication of the Nauvoo Masonic Hall which was truly grand and interesting the first dedication of the kind I ever attended. The procession was grand being Composed of about 500 members. [Hyrum Smith dedicated the Masonic temple, which Joseph Smith calls "the most substantial and best finished Masonic Temple in the Western States."]
