Old Nauvoo Burial Grounds
LOCATION: Parley Street two miles east of Main Street
HOURS: Always Open
The Burial Grounds were established in 1842 on the north side of the old Carthage Road. The City Cemetery that was once near the intersection of Durphy and White Streets had become filled because of the many deaths in early Nauvoo.
Today, a bronze monument of a grieving family stands sentinel over this sacred cemetery, a peaceful and wooded resting place for early pioneers.
To memorialize many of those pioneers for whom no marker now exists, a kiosk at the cemetery includes the names of many of those who died in Nauvoo.
