The Hill Cumorah
in the state of New York. 


(A 1841 engraving of the hill Cumorah located in New York, State.  Looking south, where Joseph Smith was given plates by an angel Moroni, on the west side, near the peak.)
This hill located "convenient to the village of Manchester, Ontario county, New York" and is now called in our day "The Hill Cumorah".  (Joseph Smith-History 1:51)
This is the hill where the prophet Mornori built a stone box and deposited the Book of Mormon plates and other items.
Later in 1823 A.D. the Prophet Joseph Smith was given the Book of Mormon plates.  
(The following is an old photo of the "Hill Cumorah")

  “…I…went to the place where the messenger, [the angel Moroni], had told me the plates were deposited;...
Convenient to the village of Manchester, Ontario County, New York, stands a hill of considerable size, and the most elevated of any in the neighborhood. On the west side of this hill, not far from the top, under a stone of considerable size, lay the plates, deposited in a stone box.” 
(Joseph Smith-History 1:50-51)

Hill Cumorah, Church History

Other than the Book of Mormn plates and other things in the stone box, there has never been any Book of Mormon time-period artifacts, that have been discovered or found on or around the Hill Cumorah in the state of New York.  (No Artifacts At The New York Hill Cumorah)

When looking at all the facts involved, the hill Cumorah that is located in the state of New York is not the same hill Cumorah as recorded in the Book of Mormon.  There are two hills in two different locations and both hills are called in the 21st century, 'Cumorah'.
