Hill Cumorah is a north-south trending drumlin (a hill left by retreating glaciers). It is best known as the place where, according to Mormon Church tradition, the prophet Joseph Smith found the golden plates that were the source of the Book of Mormon. The land is currently owned by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (Mormons) and they maintain a visitor center on the site. Every July a large outdoor pageant is held here to commemorate Smith's discovery.
This hill is one of the highest points in the area, and the skyscrapers of Rochester can be seen to the west on clear days from the summit. If the Wayne/Ontario county line were a few miles south of its current location, it would have been a contender for the highest point in Wayne County. But it lies instead in Ontario County, in the Town of Manchester (not in the Town of Palmyra, which is the closest population center, to the north in Wayne County).
