Historic Nauvoo is a place for making connections. To the past. To those you love. To yourself.
In 1839, early members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints—called “Mormons”—established this place of peace and beauty on a great bend in the Mississippi. And then they were forced to leave.
Today, Nauvoo is one of America’s premier historic communities. It has been designated a National Historic Landmark District. Many of the early homes, shops and public buildings have been restored or rebuilt and are open for guided tours. Horse-drawn wagons carry visitors along the tree-shaded streets. Children’s plays, musicals and nightly shows fill the days with family entertainment.
At “Pioneer Pastimes,” children play the “unplugged” games of another century. Visitors enjoy demonstrations in a blacksmith shop, a brickyard, a tin shop, a bakery and in the historic Browning Gunsmith Shop.
Nauvoo offers its guests a chance to understand a people of faith, to make a connection to the values of a simpler time, and to share some real fun with family or friends.
But don’t reach for your credit card. Everything in Nauvoo is complimentary. There’s not even a connection fee.
