"This paper describes and assesses the results of the 1982 archaeological investigations on the Joseph Smith Sr. farm in Palmyra, situated in the Finger Lakes region of western New York. The discoveries made at the site provide another perspective of the boyhood home-site of Joseph Smith Jr. where he lived between the ages of fourteen and twenty-five years (1819-1830)."
