We’ll start off at Coshocton, Ohio where we’ll tour the museum that houses many artifacts that may have been Nephite including headplates, breastplates, atlatl, arrow heads and other metal and stone artifacts. Also on display is the Newark holy stones which depict Moses and the ten commandments written in paleo Hebrew which was found in a mound nearby.

We’ll also visit flint ridge, the site of an ancient munitions factory that may have supplied the arms for many of the conflicts in the Book of Mormon. We’ll finish off the day by exploring the great Newark earthworks. A massive 4 square mile complex that dates to both Nephite and Jaredite times.

We’ll visit Mound City national historical park, a fortified city that dates to Nephite times. Then we’ll continue down the paint valley which is lined with 2000 year old hill top forts as we make our way to an Amish bakery for a frontier lunch. After lunch we’ll visit the serpent mound, a 1300 foot long serpent earthwork on a hill top bluff.

  1. Ryan can we still sign up for the tour? Also the $1195 – obviously that doesn’t include the flight – what does it include – what other costs should we anticipate?
    (Ryan could you please send me an email)

  2. We saw Nephite Explorer tonight. It talked about an Eastern US tour led by Tim Ballard, yet there is nothing on your website about this tour. Is it no longer available? Sounded like a wonderful tour.

  3. My friend and I are interested in attending your symposium, Saturday 13 Feb 2016 in Orem and would like to register. Without having to register on line (going through Paypal and all) is there another option we can use to secure seating arrangements?

  4. Is there going to be another Eastern US Tour with Tim Ballard like the one you Previously Posted? That is one of my life long Dream Bucket list things to do. Hoping the answer is a YES.

  5. I am interested in the American Covenant tour in September. Do you have an itinerary? Do we need to fly into Boston on September 24 and out of Washington, DC, on October 2?

    • I am still interested too. Just put it out to my husband and he can’t go cause of work schedule. I’m thinking of taking my son and seeing if I can talk my sister into going. How much of a deposit do you need to put down. Assuming there are still openings… And yes, what else do we need to plan for.. Assuming we have to book flights into Boston and out of Washington DC.

      • it’s a $300 deposit and we take care of everything except meals and airfare, however I can put you in touch with and airfare specialist who gets good deals, and the breakfasts are covered by the hotel.

  6. Yes I’m interested and looking into flights. If you have my member info.. I would love to talk on the phone. I don’t want to post my number to the public.

  7. Ryan, Can you give me the referral for the flight specialist? I found a pretty good deal but want to see if he has a better option, before I book it. Also, once I book it there is no refunds, it will be a point of no returns…Literally. Ha ha

  8. Ryan, is there a number we can call to get more information on the schedule, etc. My husband and I are very interested in the American Covenant tour. Are there still openings? Other than the link to make a deposit, you can’t find any other information.

  9. We want to get our air fare for the American Covenant Tour. Is starting airport and hotel in Boston know and the ending ones in DC.? Is there information about transportation available? We are so excited. We’ve seen some cheap fares. Thank you.

  10. Looking forward to American Covenant Tour. Would like to verify Boston airport and name of hotel. Time of check in at hotel. Also which airport out of Washington DC and what hotel and approximate time of departure should we schedule?
