Lyman Wight was likely the first member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saint to settle in Daviess County, Mo., at the site identified by Joseph Smith as Adam-ondi-Ahman. During the Prophet's time as a resident of Missouri, the site was simply known as Diahman.
Joseph laid out preliminary plans of a city with a stake president and a temple for Adam-ondi-Ahman. Opposition forces led to the Saints leaving the area shortly after the announcement of these plans.
One of the views shows the site of Lyman Wight's first home. He subsequently built another home higher up on Tower Hill. There are still extant photographs of that second home, which no longer stands.
