About the Campaign:

This project will be overseen by Wayne May and the Heartland Research Group Inc.

We will thoroughly scan the territory of that ancient city. For the cost of a fast-food lunch, you will help professionals find evidence of North America’s largest 4th Century city that in its time was larger than London.

We believe that Zarahemla of the 4th Century was more like Novgorod of the 11th Century. These two cities were built primarily of wood and earth. Just as the remains of Novgorod have been found in recent times buried in the ground, so the remains of Zarahemla will be found in the ground. We expect to see habitations, roads, walls, temples, and fortifications of this ancient city buried under the row crops and in the bluffs of Lee County, Iowa.

Let’s go to the right place with the right technologies.  We already know that there are many ancient mounds on both sides of the Upper Mississippi River near Nauvoo.  Wayne May is the right man to lead the search. He has spent his adult life looking for Ancient America in the Heartland. It is now time to enlarge Wayne’s toolbox to include all that modern science offers.

Your thoughtful one time,  or monthly donation will help us find and share the knowledge of this ancient city with the world.

Your contribution will make it possible to use military-grade drones and ground-breaking scanning technologies to create digital maps of the most important city in the Book of Mormon.

The whole world needs to see Zarahemla. We are fortunate to know that the most likely place for the location of this great city is across the river from Nauvoo. It is not under the streets of Chicago but is in the ground under farmlands that are easy to scan.

Join the latter-day heroes and become a charter member for this project to scan 10,000 acres. Do it now and you will have the right to tell your great-grandchildren that you took part in the discovery of Zarahemla. Let’s show the world that the great city of the Book of Mormon is part of the ancient world.

Let’s start the search for Zarahemla today!

    Wayne is doing great with the limited resources he has, but I want to help him do more, and having his own scanning equipment would be a great blessing. Please join me in this great cause!

    In making our case for the restored gospel of Jesus Christ, I believe God intends us to find and use the evidence He has given—reasons, if you will—which affirm the truthfulness of His work.

    I am fascinated by the evidences that Wayne and the team are unearthing on this continent. I have read the Book of Mormon many times and now it comes to life as I imagine the people’s histories occurring in the Midwest here in America. I am part Sac Fox and therefore I believe the Book of Mormon calls to me as it has been designed to do by God. These archeological discoveries are amazing and finding the temple of Zarahemla would shock the World!
