- Far West, Missouri
- August 1836 – Founded
“Let the city, Far West, be a holy and consecrated land unto me;
and it shall be called most holy,
for the ground upon which thou standest is holy.” (D&C 115:7)
First Missionaries sent to Europe started from Far West“And next spring let them depart to go over the great waters, and there promulgate my gospel, the fulness thereof, and bear record of my name. Let them take leave of my saints in the city of Far West, on the twenty-sixth day of April next, on the building-spot of my house, saith the Lord.” 1

And thou shalt put the mercy seat upon the ark of the testimony in the most holy place.
And thou shalt hang up the vail under the taches, that thou mayest bring in thither within the vail the ark of the testimony: and the vail shall divide unto you between the holy place and the most holy.Is the temple lot at Far West the Holy of Holies? If so, it would add great significance to the Twelve (the early missionaries) being sent out from this location.
