Sarah Granger Kimball Home
LOCATION: Main Street
Sarah Granger Kimball (1818-1898) was born in New York not far from Palmyra. Her parents were early supporters of Joseph Smith, and Sarah was similarly devoted to the Restored Gospel of Jesus Christ. She helped establish the Female Relief Society of Nauvoo in 1842. In 1868, she laid the cornerstone for the Church’s Relief Society building in Salt Lake City. Sarah was politically active and a good friend to Susan B. Anthony. She was president of the Utah Woman Suffrage Association. Hiram Kimball joined the Church in 1843 and remained in Nauvoo until 1851 due to business interests. Later joining the Saints in Utah, he was called on a mission in 1863 but perished in a steamer explosion on his way to the Sandwich Islands (Hawaii).
