This home was once owned by Jones H. Flournoy, a Missouri landowner and businessman. His holdings included the Temple Lot in Jackson County. Bishop Edward Partridge purchased the 63.27-acre Temple Lot from Flournoy in December 1831. The Prophet Joseph Smith may have met in the house during the negotiations for that property.
In 1838, before the hearings at Richmond and incarceration in Liberty Jail, Joseph Smith dined in this home, which was then owned by Gen. Moses Wilson. Sources note that Wilson lamented that "in less than two hours my wife loved (Joseph Smith) better than she did me."
Built in 1826, the little home was subsequently moved from its original site to the site seen here, a distance of a few city blocks.
