Notable Mormon pioneers are returning to Salt Lake City.

Visitors to the LDS Church History Museum during conference weekend will likely run into a blacksmith or a stonecutter — or perhaps Eliza R. Snow, Sarah Granger Kimball or Amanda Barnes Smith. Brigham Young also will be there.

"It creates an experience," said Angela Ames, who for at least a portion of the weekend will be Patience Loader Archer. "You step into that time when you're interacting with them."

Ames works as a church history educator at the museum, but most of the profilers are church service missionaries. They dress in period costumes and perform vignettes.
