City of and Land of¹ Lehi (Heartland geography model)

Nephite land which was the location of a border dispute between people living in the land of Lehi and the neighboring land of Morianton. The city of Lehi, located “in the north by the borders of the east seashore,” was built in an unspecified “particular manner” during a time of Nephite prosperity. Four years later, the city was seized by Amalickiah and his armies during a Lamanite offensive. The recapturing of the city of Lehi by the Nephites is not mentioned, but presumably it was recovered with other coastal cities.
