Revised Plat of the City of Zion, circa Early August 1833

In June 1833, the church’s high priesthood presidency in Kirtland, Ohio, sent plans to Missouri church leaders for the projected temple and city of Zion. Revisions were later made, and Frederick G. Williams redrew both plans. The most significant revision was the reconfiguration of the city’s dimensions and the number of lots it contained to accommodate 20,000 inhabitants.
Williams drafted this revised plat, which was likely carried to Missouri by messenger sometime after 10 August 1833.
