Wilford Woodruff, Sr. Cabinet of Curiosities
Named for the fourth President and Prophet of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, the Wilford Woodruff, Sr. Cabinet of Curiosities displays a collection of Mormon curiosae, gathered from across the Mormon trail – the path the 19th century Mormon pioneers traveled in their westward expansion pilgrimage. Wilford Woodruff, Sr. was President of the LDS church during the prohibition of the practice of polygamy, and was a noted diarist. His daily journals, meticulously kept from the age of 8 until his death at 91, are stored under restricted access at the LDS Church History Archives in Salt Lake City, UT.
