Preston, England

The city of Preston is the cradle of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in British Isles. The city itself served as the headquarters for the Church from 1837-1840. Most of the first British members of the Church to emigrate to America in 1840 came from the area of Preston. Although the city has changed much in recent years, some important historical sites can still be identified with reasonable certainty. Today the Church has a Temple and a Missionary Training Center in this city.
